I don’t disagree with you Patrick… as niche fuels wind and solar have their place.

Very familiar with algae, supplying light artificially in closed systems or supplementing light in semi-open systems is the direction. This makes the upfront infrastructure investment higher, but the equivalent per barrel production cost is competitive with oil in the $35-$40/barrel price.

The stumbling block is that the high oil producing strains need some genetic tweaking to make them stable during scale up. They form a heterogenous population right now with some frequency reverting to low oil producing strains.
