AUDI, BMW, DAIMLER - EVERYTHING COMES IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WAY

  • Hydrogen

For many decades, the developers and engineers of renowned German car manufacturers focused on the optimization of combustion engines. Performance, reliability and range were at the top of the list of requirements that the market demanded as a prerequisite for purchasing decisions. Actually not much has changed about that, there is only one more point on the list - if possible, the drive should be cleaner. Blinded by Elon Musk's battery cars, carmakers in this country were also working on pure electric motors, and politicians were doing it, by the way. But the sales figures meanwhile point to a gigantic flop - for many good reasons.

About the author


BATTERY CARS ARE CHARGE INHIBITORS
Since 2015, when it became known that Schummel software was used on diesel vehicles on the test bench, German carmakers have invested a lot of money in the development of vehicles with electric motors and batteries. Elaborate marketing campaigns were used to try to make the pure Stromer appealing to customers.

Despite all efforts, 47,903 battery-powered cars were sold in the first nine months of 2019, according to the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt), which corresponds to 1.7% of the total number of 2,740,158 passenger cars.

POLICY SETS THE WRONG ACCENTS

The majority of the living conditions of families and working people cannot be served by battery-powered cars. The cars are expensive, the electricity from charging stations is limited due to the hardly available infrastructure, the charging time is too long and therefore unacceptable, the range uninteresting and the production of cobalt and lithium under questionable conditions gnaws at the conscience.

German federal policy promotes the purchase of a new battery car with tax revenues of up to EUR 4,000.00 and the subsidisation of a Tesla battery factory worth billions is still in the pipeline. The taxpayers bear the costs and the environment in the poorer countries the burden of this absurd development. "La strada dell'inferno è lastricata di buone intenzioni." In English: The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

GAS STATIONS NEED HYDROGEN COLUMNS

Why hydrogen technology is still being neglected by leading politicians and decision-makers is a mystery. The construction of a filling station network for hydrogen vehicles can be based on customers' previous habits and living conditions. Vehicle users and filling station operators simply purchase and sell a different fuel. The type of refuelling process, the duration of around three minutes and the range of 500 to 700 km are comparable to conventional habits.

There are currently around 14,100 filling stations in Germany. Equipping this already established infrastructure with hydrogen fuel pumps is certainly more practical than rewiring park and residential buildings, roads in residential areas and hotels with high-performance charging stations. In Germany, 76 hydrogen filling stations have been opened and more are being opened.

DYNACERT SUPPLIES TECHNOLOGY FOR RETROFITTING

The Canadian technology company dynaCERT has launched a hydrogen solution this year that enables diesel engines to significantly reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. Bus and truck fleets can use these retrofit devices to do something for the environment and reduce fuel costs at the same time. Within less than a year, users can amortize the purchase costs. Competitive industries appreciate this cost advantage.

GERMAN INDUSTRY EXPERT STRIVES FOR COOPERATION

dynaCERT solves problems and creates desires. For these reasons, it is not surprising that MOSOLF, one of the leading logistics service providers for the European automotive industry, is working on a distribution agreement with dynaCERT less than two months after issuing the general operating license for hydrogen technology in Germany.

The Canadian hydrogen experts will be at the following investor fairs in the coming weeks and will present themselves to the participants: Precious Metals & Commodities Fair, Munich, German Equity Forum, Frankfurt and the Munich Capital Markets Conference (MKK).

WHEN WILL HYDROGEN CARS ARRIVE?

In recent days, Daimler has delivered a police car powered by a hydrogen fuel cell to the media in Hamburg. It will only be a matter of time before Audi (h-tron) and BMW (Hydrogen NEXT) will also be launching standard hydrogen models on the market. The future of drive types will be diverse and hydrogen will continue to gain in importance.

NEL, First Hydrogen, Rock Tech Lithium: Why investors must rethink now

  • Hydrogen

For months, stocks related to innovative mobility concepts lived in the shadows. After the hype of last year and the first few months of this year, the former high-flyers seemed to have run out of steam. But the wind has changed. Investors' appetite for risk is high again. A few weeks ago, the market would have shrugged its shoulders at best, but now it is attracting buyers. For investors who think speculatively, this is excellent news!

Clean Logistics, Plug Power, BYD - Huge upheavals in the transport industry fuel share prices

  • Hydrogen

"Decarbonization" - this term could make it to "word of the year." That is because it describes what urgently needs to be implemented in all sectors to preserve the Earth's habitat: the switch from fossil, carbon-based energy sources to sustainably and climate-neutrally produced energy sources. The transport industry plays a significant role in global warming. In Germany alone, road freight transport is expected to increase by a further 19% by 2030. Innovative ideas and solutions that can be implemented quickly are therefore urgently needed. In doing so, manufacturers are relying on a variety of technologies.

Plug Power, Enapter, SFC Energy - The climate savior is hydrogen!

  • Hydrogen

The strong increase in energy prices is driving the inflation rate in Germany to a high level. With an increase of 4.1% compared to the same month of the previous year, inflation accelerated again in September. Already in July, the ECB thought that a cyclical high might have been reached. It has reached its highest level in almost 28 years, only in December 1993, it was once briefly above the 4% mark. These are historic times into which Western society is now moving; unfortunately, no one knows when the end will be. The efficient production of hydrogen and its industrial utilization would make our energy supply affordable and environmentally compatible in the long term. Unfortunately, the current technologies are still costly and not suitable for mass production. However, hydrogen remains a hot topic on the stock market. We take a look at some of the protagonists in the H2 thriller.
