Ballard Power, dynaCERT, NEL ASA - higher, faster, hydrogen!

The mobility of the future will be a mix of different energy sources. New technologies will make conventional combustion engines even cleaner and more efficient and, where it makes sense for the user, technologies with electronic drive motors will also be used. However, the German government is also attempting to influence the market by subsidising battery cars, a technology that is already being phased out in China. This political actionism from the Chancellor's Office is bypassing the market, and car manufacturers in Germany are noticing this too. A total of 57,533 purely electric cars were registered in 2019 until November - of a total of 3.6 million newly registered passenger cars.

    Germany does not want battery cars

    Detached from all redistribution efforts with tax money, the interest of the German population in purely electric cars is so low that it is negligible. Daimler's fully electronic EQC seems to be becoming an economic disaster. Just 55 vehicles were registered with the Federal Motor Transport Authority from May to November in 2019.

    Hardly better was the situation at Audi, where 192 E-Tron were registered in November 2019. Technologies that flop despite incentives from tax money are obviously not innovations, because they neither solve an obvious problem nor create desires.

    Charging stations for electricians are missing

    Battery cars need power stations to be charged. Due to the high power requirements, conventional sockets, as found in households, are not sufficient and stronger charging stations are needed. In 2019, for example, around 250 new charging stations were registered in Lower Saxony, as in the previous year. In total, there are now around 1,000 public charging points in Volkswagen's home state.

    The German government is aiming to achieve the target of seven million electric cars being registered in Germany by 2030. If this goal is to be achieved even approximately with battery-powered cars, several million charging points will probably be needed nationwide - with state subsidies, of course.

    Hydrogen is the solution

    While the planned economy scenarios of Chancellor Angela Merkel lack real reference and are obviously going to fail, investors are successfully backing hydrogen technologies. Shareholders of the manufacturer of fuel cells, Ballard Power, could experience a share price that went through the roof in the past months.

    The same experiences made shareholders of NEL ASA, because the company develops hydrogen production systems as required for a network of filling stations for hydrogen-powered vehicles. Filling up with hydrogen takes as long as with petrol or diesel and for this reason it would be sufficient to add hydrogen stations to the German network of filling stations with just 14,000 locations.

    Retrofitting instead of abolition

    With an environmentally friendly solution for 'now and today', dynaCERT can inspire the capital market. The company has developed a retrofit technology for diesel engines that generates hydrogen on demand and adds it to the combustion process. The hydrogen is used less as a fuel and more as a catalyst, which significantly increases the efficiency of the combustion process. In addition to saving fuel, the emission of pollutants is also significantly reduced.

    The company has been able to attract renowned investors such as the Canadian billionaire Eric Sprott and German automotive logistics specialist Dr. Jörg Mosolf. Smart Money usually knows what it's doing - and doesn't need taxpayers' money for it.

    Hydrogen shares: New favourites First Hydrogen and PNE instead of Plug Power and ITM Power?

    • Hydrogen
    • greenhydrogen
    • renewableenergies

    Hydrogen stocks have electrified investors' imaginations for years. But 2022 pure plays like Plug Power, Nel and ITM Power have disappointed. Not just in terms of share price performance but operationally as well. In contrast, newcomer First Hydrogen was one of the high flyers. The share price shot up by more than 100%, and the hydrogen commercial vehicles passed the tests. The Canadians want to continue to step on the gas in the current year. The share should benefit from this again; at CAD 200 million, it does not appear expensive. Now the German PNE is also entering the billion-dollar market. Following the end of takeover speculation, new impetus from green hydrogen is welcome. ITM Power sends a sign of life with an order from Linde.

    Hydrogen vision or greenwashing? Amazon, First Hydrogen, Plug Power

    Nowadays, various sustainability projects are under criticism, for example, when companies invest in forests to offset their CO2 emissions. Even the EU Commission has been accused of greenwashing following its decision to classify natural gas as sustainable. The critical discourse that has now been initiated could put many companies under scrutiny. We explain where sustainability is just PR and where the hydrogen vision can become a reality.

    Nel ASA, First Hydrogen, Landi Renzo, Plug Power - Hydrogen: The 2nd row is booming

    • climatechange

    For climate protection and a secure energy supply, the Western world must become independent of fossil fuels. Hydrogen plays a key role in climate change as a substitute for natural gas, oil, and coal. Despite programs worth billions of euros from politicians and excellent prospects for the future, the largest companies in the hydrogen and fuel sector, such as Nel ASA and Plug Power, are still undergoing a profound correction. In contrast, it is mainly second-tier companies attracting attention that could catch up soon based on their technology.
