Ballard Power, dynaCERT, ITM Power - what hydrogen investors need to know now

  • Hydrogen

The hydrogen industry is in the focus of investors and the energy carrier is giving hope to politics and economy. While the general public still has to struggle with the Corona consequences, the champagne mood has already returned at the stock exchange with the hydrogen shares. Every announcement with details of turnover and visions is frenetically celebrated and leads to an increase in market capitalization through share purchases. Scalable business models with a focus on environmental protection are in demand and, as is well known, money can be earned with solutions.

Supplier for vehicle manufacturers

Ballard Power's share price yesterday reached the highest price since 2003 on the Canadian home market TSX. At the peak, the shares changed hands at CAD 19.73. At this level, the company is not far from reaching the CAD 5 billion market capitalization. The manufacturer of fuel cells has been able to record an increase in value of around 100% since the beginning of the year.

However, the trees do not grow into the sky and to justify a valuation at this level in the long term, not only great products are needed, but also corresponding growth rates and profits.

Solution for now and today

dynaCERT has developed a technology that uses hydrogen as a catalyst and not as a fuel. The patented innovation is called HydraGEN and is offered for retrofitting diesel engines. The market for the technology is huge and the operational development after the Corona restrictions is extremely exciting. Whoever uses HydroGEN not only saves up to 20% diesel, but at the same time protects the environment by reducing pollutant emissions.

The company is also listed in Canada and will shortly complete the segment change from TSXV to TSX. This step was accompanied by a capital measure. The company has received CAD 7.3 million in fresh equity for expansion. The market value of dynaCERT is currently around CAD 245 million. At CAD 0.71, the stock is currently trading far below its February 2020 high of CAD 1.25.

Infrastructure partner for hydrogen

ITM Power from Great Britain focuses on the development and manufacture of hydrogen generation and storage systems. The company equips filling stations and is therefore a predestined partner for the development of a nationwide filling station network. The value of the company now amounts to EUR 1.6 billion and has brought shareholders in the past 12 months an increase in value of over 800%.

In Germany alone there are 14,000 filling stations with gasoline and diesel. Assuming that hydrogen should become established as an energy carrier and fuel for the new mobility, it is to be expected that the supply in Germany will require a comparable density of filling stations.


Conflict of interest & risk note

In accordance with §34b WpHG we would like to point out that Apaton Finance GmbH as well as partners, authors or employees of Apaton Finance GmbH may hold long or short positions in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Apaton Finance GmbH may have a paid contractual relationship with the company, which is reported on in the context of the Apaton Finance GmbH Internet offer as well as in the social media, on partner sites or in e-mail messages. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

Daimler, Nikola, dynaCERT: He who can deliver, makes the business!

  • Hydrogen

Hydrogen is the better alternative to batteries - No other topic like hydrogen is causing the waves on the stock market to beat as hard as they have done recently. The supporters of clean air, CO2 reduction, and ongoing greenhouse gas discussions see battery technology only as a temporary hype, which was started by Tesla in particular. The industry has long known that battery technology will always remain "unclean", because its production and subsequent disposal alone consumes many times more resources than technologies that have long been available, such as water electrolysis, i.e. the decomposition of water into hydrogen and oxygen. If we consider the fuel diesel, with a share in transport of over 90%, a much more efficient and environmentally friendly combustion process can be designed by using these highly reactive elements. The energy efficiency of the electrolysis of water is over 70%. It is therefore essential that companies such as Tesla and Nikola actively strive for these findings given the wide-ranging discussions on sustainability. But Daimler also recently declared that it does not want to simply let the sleepy trend toward e-mobility standstill and will rely on hydrogen as the technology of the future.

dynaCERT, NEL ASA, McPhy - does hydrogen need nuclear power?

  • Hydrogen

In Europe, hydrogen as an energy carrier is becoming the focus of debate, offering a more environmentally friendly and practicable alternative to the battery as an energy storage medium in mobility. The production of batteries is an environmental sin par excellence. Raw materials have to be mined at great expense, a great amount of additional energy is needed for production, and at the end of the life cycle there is non-recyclable hazardous waste. Hydrogen, on the other hand, can be produced by electrolysis with CO2-neutral electricity and converted back into electricity. While in France the clean transformation of mobility can be mastered, Germany is in a self-inflicted and expensive dead-end road.

Ballard Power, NEL ASA, Plug Power - what comes after hydrogen now?

  • Hydrogen

The shares of hydrogen companies are constantly reaching new highs and the profits of the shareholders are increasing accordingly on paper. Paper profits are a fine thing, but they better not melt away. Selling in a falling market is usually harder than dealing with the lost profits from a rising share price. Given that hydrogen as an energy carrier is still a future technology that depends on many political factors to really offer environmentally friendly added value, it is advisable not to hope that the trees will grow endlessly into the sky. Realizing partial profits has not harmed anyone yet. The next big trend has already begun and it is time to position ourselves.
