Ballard Power, dynaCERT, NEL ASA - who has the most lucrative hydrogen technology?

  • Hydrogen

The economy around the globe is in a waiting position. As soon as the spread of the Corona Virus no longer poses a general threat or the social understanding of restrictions disappears, the economic race for customers and market share begins. In recent weeks, companies have had the opportunity to reflect and orient themselves. As soon as the restrictions for the general market disappear, it will become clear who has done their homework and which economic area can still afford subsidies.

Hydrogen technology for retrofitting

dynaCERT is the newcomer of the hydrogen scene, with a technology that has been awarded several prizes. The company has been working on the product launch of its innovation since 2019. The technology is called HydraGEN and can be offered to customers in different sizes. The size of the HydraGEN unit depends on the application, the larger the combustion engine, the larger the unit of dynaCERT for retrofitting.

HydraGEN makes diesel green

The advantage of HydraGEN is that the unit produces hydrogen from distilled water on demand and adds it to the diesel engine as a catalyst during the combustion process. This increases the efficiency of the engine and reduces fuel consumption by up to 20%. In addition, the emission of pollutants is significantly reduced. Measurements have shown a reduction in NOx of up to 88%. The emission of particulate matter is reduced by up to 55% and CO2 up to 10%.

Well-known investors on board

With dynaCERT's innovation, existing vehicles do not need to be replaced and the market is correspondingly large with around one billion diesel engines. One of the largest European automobile logistics companies has understood this. The Mosolf Group has been working closely with dynaCERT since last year and with the investment of Eric Sprott, who invested CAD 14 million in a financing round, another prominent market participant came on board.

CEO Jim Payne introduced the company yesterday at the 29th MKK Conference from GBC AG and the presentation is available via the following link: webcasts.eqs.com/mkk2020dynacert/de

Need for investment burdens expansion

The Canadian company Ballard Power has been developing fuel cells for more than three decades to use hydrogen as an energy source without CO2 emissions. Ballard Power's solutions are now used in many areas of logistics and energy supply. Similar to the plant manufacturer NEL ASA, the customer or state must be willing to invest in order to realize the development of a hydrogen infrastructure.

In Germany, there is already a filling station network for gasoline and diesel consisting of more than 14,000 branches. The construction of a comparable network with hydrogen would probably cost well over EUR 20 billion. However, a modern network alone is not enough; then customers will also need competitive vehicles with fuel cells.

Catch-up potential for the newcomer

Considering that the response to the Corona Pandemic has put a massive strain on the public sector budget, it can be assumed that the solution of dynaCERT, consisting of existing vehicles and the filling station network, will have a competitive advantage in the foreseeable future. Bottom line, however, any solution that contributes to environmental protection is good and important. In comparison, however, stock market valuations still differ, with Ballard Power valued at EUR 2.3 billion, dynaCERT at EUR 150 million and NEL ASA at EUR 1.5 billion. A possible catch-up potential is obvious.

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.
