Ballard Power and the fuel cell
Geoffrey Ballard founded the company in 1979 and has been involved in the development of fuel cells ever since. In 1993, the first bus powered by hydrogen technology and fuel cells was introduced. A lot of time has passed since then.
In the first nine months of 2019, Ballard achieved sales of USD 64.44 million. Compared to the previous year, this represents a decline of around USD 3.5 million. Bottom line, the company increased its loss from USD 15.85 million to USD 28.78 million compared to the previous year. On the balance sheet, Ballard still had USD 153.36 million available to spend. At the current share price of EUR 10.17, the market value is EUR 2.44 billion.
dynaCERT makes diesel green
Over the past 15 years dynaCERT has developed a hydrogen technology that is now ready for series production. The innovation from dynaCERT is primarily suitable for retrofitting diesel engines, and not without reason, because there are already around a billion diesel engines of all types in use worldwide. The devices produce hydrogen on demand with commercially available distilled water and add it to the combustion process. This increases the efficiency of the engine and reduces NOx emissions by up to 88%, as well as particulate emissions by 55% and CO2 by 9%.
The purchase of dynaCERT's technology not only protects the environment, but the purchase of the device can pay for itself within one year due to fuel savings of up to 20%. The company is going on a sales offensive this year and at a price of EUR 0.58 per share dynaCERT is valued at 205.51 million EUR. The advantage of this technology is that it can be used immediately and is scalable without significant effort.
NEL ASA provides the infrastructure
The Norwegian plant manufacturer NEL ASA has focused on the production of hydrogen. In connection with the development of a network of hydrogen filling stations, the expectations of the company and its future prospects are correspondingly high. There are more than 14,000 filling stations with gasoline and diesel in Germany. It is probably currently considered possible by market participants that NEL will be involved in the construction of filling stations around the globe.
In the first nine months of 2019, sales rose from EUR 36.42 million to EUR 39.39 million compared to the previous year. In the same period operating losses rose from EUR 13.54 million to EUR 19.12 million. At the current share price of EUR 1.125, NEL is valued at EUR 1.50 billion on the stock exchange. In January 2020, the management successfully used the valuation level for a capital increase of EUR 84.55 million and provided the balance sheet with fresh liquidity.
