We propose a dynamical (quintessence) model of dark energy in the current Universe with a renormalizable (Higgs-like) scalar potential We prove the viability of our model (after fine-tuning) for the certain range of the average scalar curvature values, and study the cosmological signatures distinguishing our model from the standard description of dark energy in terms of a cosmological constant
