Ballard Power, dynaCERT, NEL ASA - which hydrogen technology has potential?

  • Hydrogen

The topic of hydrogen in mobility is currently occupying the economy, politics and investors. The stock market is looking for companies that develop solutions with the energy carrier of the future, because hydrogen can be used as an energy storage medium in electric mobility as an alternative to the battery. While some innovations are not yet ready for the market on a large scale due to a lack of infrastructure, there is already a solution that is being offered in series.

About the author


Fuel cell producer in high gear

Ballard Power is a manufacturer of fuel cells that can be used in all vehicles on land, sea and air. The crux of the matter, however, is that the hydrogen should be produced with renewable energies so that the CO2 balance is neutral. The scalable use of hydrogen and fuel cells is therefore dependent on an infrastructure that is linked to renewable energies. So, similar to a battery, it makes no sense that the exhaust gases are produced elsewhere, compared to combustion engines.

According to a presentation in connection with the figures for the first nine months of 2019, the company had an order backlog with a delivery date within one year of USD 123.6 million, with total orders on hand amounting to USD 199.6 million. However, revenues for the first nine months of 2019 were USD 64.4 million, resulting in a loss of USD 20.8 million. With a share price of EUR 10.00, the market value is currently around EUR 2.5 billion.

Scalable hydrogen technology for today

dynaCERT has finally brought a hydrogen technology to market in 2019, which is now to be globally distributed in 2020. The special feature of this innovation is that hydrogen is produced on demand as a catalyst to increase the efficiency of diesel engines. The dynaCERT unit was developed for retrofitting and the purchase costs for trucks and buses with average mileage are amortized within less than one year, according to the manufacturer.

Test results promise a reduction of up to 19% of diesel consumption. In addition, NOx emissions can be reduced by up to 88%. Particulate matter emissions are also reduced by up to 55%. CO2 emissions are also reduced by up to 9%. Thus, dynaCERT's hydrogen technology combines environmental protection with an economic advantage.

The CEO Jim Payne expects monthly sales of an average of 2,000 units in 2020. The wholesale price of CAD 6,000.00 per device leads to a sales potential of 144 million CAD with the promised number of units. At a price of EUR 0.66, the market value of dynaCERT is approximately EUR 223 million, which is less than 10% of Ballard Power's value, with potentially similar sales in 2020.

Plant manufacturer with capital increase

At a price of EUR 1,02 per share, NEL ASA has a market capitalization of EUR 1,3 billion. The company develops plants and equipment for the production of hydrogen. The establishment of a nationwide network of hydrogen filling stations would bring a lot of money into NEL ASA's coffers. In the first nine months of 2019, the company generated sales of EUR 39.4 million and made a loss of EUR 17.4 million.

In a news release, NEL ASA announced a capital increase by 89 million shares. The loss-making company therefore needs additional liquidity. The order backlog at the end of the third quarter of 2019 was 57.5 million EUR.

Only green hydrogen is climate friendly

In conclusion, it must be stated that climate-friendly hydrogen must be produced from renewable energy. The extraction of hydrogen from the energy of coal-fired power plants or gas merely leads to a shift in CO2 production. Based on the fact that the resistance of the population to wind and solar power plants in the countryside is increasing, the widespread green hydrogen still remains a vision of the future.

The hydrogen technology of dynaCERT, on the other hand, is already a practicable progress today, as it reduces fuel consumption by almost one fifth. Another advantage is that the devices can be retrofitted to existing vehicles, locomotives and ships.

BYD, dynaCERT, Daimler: Alternative drives are flying again

  • Hydrogen

Trends and moods are sometimes decisive on the stock market: Even a proven future technology has to lose ground when the investor crowd moves on to another industry or prefers to watch the markets from the sidelines. That is what has happened in recent months concerning electromobility and hydrogen. Even big names like BYD and Tesla corrected. However, things have been on the up again for a few days now. We explain where opportunities could lie now.

SMA Solar, dynaCERT, TotalEnergies - Good for the climate, good for your portfolio!

  • Hydrogen

The signs of the times are climate protection: In America, Joe Biden is trying to push his Green New Deal through the legislature, China is phasing out the construction of coal-fired power plants, and in Germany, the Greens will most likely be part of the next government. Industry is also rethinking its position. Recently, an alliance of 69 leading German companies called for an "implementation offensive for climate neutrality" within the first 100 days of a new government. Signatories included heavyweights such as SAP, E.ON and Bayer. The following three stocks should get a tailwind from the new climate awareness.

Nel ASA, dynaCERT, Plug Power - Hydrogen is part of the energy turnaround

  • Hydrogen

If the upcoming German government wants to achieve the energy transition and banish all fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas, part of the solution lies with hydrogen. On particularly sunny or windy days, some of the green electricity generated is simply lost. To avoid overloading the power lines, some of the electricity is given away abroad. Using this energy to produce green hydrogen would make the energy produced both storable and portable. If the price per kg of hydrogen could be reduced significantly, the greatest potential for this technology would automatically arise.
