    Oil companies have a lot of money. The way forward looks brighter and brigher with oil prices expected to go up to $ 100 a barrel in the next few months.
    By 2015 it is forecast that there will be a shortage with demand being more than supply.

    So, these rich oil companies fund various processes for alternative energy like, CCS, algae to oil, etc.,
    They focus more on oil than technologies like solar energy. They want to be able to use their refineries and other infra. That is the idea.
