Summary

#StartupSXSWEco

In light of one of the greatest technological developments in energy — fracking — energy investment paradigms are shifting. At the same time, some of the largest and most significant investments into clean energy technology are being funded by oil and gas companies. The companies and technologies receiving these investments seem to have conflicting goals, but there is also substantial cross-innovation. Individuals and groups who are committed to “clean energy” may find more progress occurring within “traditional” energy companies. Is there money to be made in clean energy by investing in oil and gas?
