I'm new to animation with blender, I can animate the rotation, position and scale of a light, but not the energy that it emits. Can anyone tell me how to animate the Energy value?

I found the solution.

For Blender Internal

In the Energy label: press right mouse button and select Insert Keyframe.

For Cycles:

Create an emission node and animate the strength.

    $\begingroup$ This works with any setting that can be animated. You can also hover the mouse over it and press I on the keyboard. $\endgroup$
