Now, this would be a real surprise: Will Tesla hunter BYD soon not only sell its e-cars in Germany but also produce them? According to media reports, the Chinese carmaker is talking to Ford about buying the plant in Saarlouis. Another Chinese group is also continuing to go full throttle: JinkoSolar. The solar group reports strong figures, the start of construction of a reference project and analysts increase the price target for the share. Investors are also waiting for a big bang from dynaCERT. The cleantech company wants to enter into trading with emission certificates. In addition, sales figures are increasing in the core business.

    dynaCERT: Emission certificates would cause a revaluation

    A market worth billions has emerged worldwide around the trade in emission certificates. In the future, dynaCERT also wants to get involved in this market. Potential customers are companies that need to offset their greenhouse gases to achieve their ESG targets. These are, for example, oil and gas producers as well as mining and transportation companies.

    For dynaCERT, the certificates would represent a recurring source of revenue. Because with the management of carbon credits for their HydraGEN customers, the business model is based on the sharing of revenues generated by the sales of carbon credits. In addition, the Canadians want to place a carbon credit convertible bond with a volume of up to CAD 10 million to finance the growth of the core business.

    At its core, dynaCERT is a provider of systems - based on the so-called HydraGEN technology - for reducing CO2 emissions and fuel costs of vehicles - especially for fleet operators. Demand has picked up noticeably in the past year. Several fleet operators - including mining groups - have placed orders. The individual unit numbers are manageable, but one has a foot in the door. In December, a total of 137 existing orders were reported. The emission certificates of dynaCERT are to reach the Verified Carbon Standard of Verra. According to the Company, this is in the final phase. Thus, the certification would be validated by the company Earthood. If the certification and the placement of the convertible bond succeed, a revaluation of the Company would be likely.

    BYD: E-cars soon "Made in Germany"?

    Next to Tesla, BYD is the most successful manufacturer of e-cars. Up to now, the vehicles have essentially been offered in the domestic market. BYD has ambitious expansion plans for 2023. In Germany, the Chinese are starting with three models: The ATTO 3, Tang SUVs and the Han luxury sedan. On the one hand, sales are to take place via flagship stores in major German cities. On the other hand, six dealer groups with a nationwide network of car dealerships carrying established premium brands such as Mercedes-Benz and BMW are to offer BYD vehicles. According to "manager magazin," BYD plans to sell 120,000 electric cars in 2026 in Germany alone. That would correspond to a market share of around 10%.

    But will the Chinese go further and produce in Germany as well? The Wall Street Journal reports talks between BYD and Ford. In the process, the US automaker could part with its plant in Saarlouis. The Ford Focus is produced there. However, the plant will only be closed until 2025, when Ford plans to reduce the number of employees in Germany by more than 3,000 in the coming years. According to IG Metall, layoffs are also planned in Cologne.

    JinkoSolar: Profit doubled and price target increased

    For the solar industry, 2022 was a strong year. Market leader JinkoSolar has also benefited from this. The group has published the first preliminary figures for its operating subsidiary JinkoSolar. According to these, JinkoSolar achieved a net income of CNY 2.66 billion to CNY 2.96 billion in fiscal 2022. In 2021, it was CNY 1.52 billion to CNY 1.82 billion less. Profit was thus significantly more than doubled.

    JinkoSolar also reported the launch of a reference project in Saudi Arabia. After securing financing, construction could begin on the 300 MW Saad solar PV project. Jinko manager Mothana Qteishat said, "A great start to 2023, the completion of the Saad project underlines our commitment to His Royal Highness Prince Mohammad Bin Salman and Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030. This fits very well with our track record in the region, where we have the world's largest single-site solar plant in operation (1.2 GW Sweihan project in Abu Dhabi) and the world's largest single-site plant under construction (2.1 GW Dhafra project in Abu Dhabi). We are pleased to have selected Elsewedy Electric as our partner and EPC contractor for our first project in the Kingdom, bringing its regional expertise."

    This year, Jinko's stock has also rebounded. Within a few weeks, it went from below EUR 40 to over EUR 50. Most recently, Roth Capital upgraded the share of the Chinese solar group from "Neutral" to "Buy". The analysts raised the price target from USD 50 to USD 70.

    Electromobility is shaking up the automotive world. If BYD were to actually buy the Ford plant in Saarland, it would be a strong signal. Orders are now coming in at dynaCERT. If the emission certificates and the bond placement also work out, the share price should increase in 2023. Operationally, JinkoSolar is on top. The share may also come to life again in the current year.

    The big battery question of 2023: BASF, Altech Advanced Materials, Volkswagen - Who is the fastest?

    • Electromobility
    • Innovations
    • Technology

    In recent months it has become clear to investors that the global economy will have to contend with sharp price increases after the pandemic. The greatest inflationary pressure comes from scarce raw materials, especially for high-tech industrial goods. That is because the trend toward climate protection is forcing the industry to make its manufacturing processes more resource-efficient. As a result, this requires major investment in new energy plants and storage systems. Electromobility is still the smaller problem here because how will humanity secure green energy supplies around the globe? The energy hunger of the emerging nations already exceeds the new demand in the industrialized nations by a factor of six. Sophisticated ideas are needed!

    If you order a new photovoltaic system today, you cannot avoid products from China. Even German brands often work with Chinese partners and benefit from local technology at favorable prices. But the energy transition is facing a turning point: The gap between East and West is getting deeper and deeper. We look at what this means for companies in the sector and where opportunities could arise.

    JinkoSolar, Manuka Resources, BYD - Vanadium raw material as an insider tip

    • Mining
    • Vanadium
    • Batteries
    • renewableenergies

    China and Russia are the two leading vanadium producers, with the Middle Kingdom producing 70,000 tons in 2022, more than 4 times as much vanadium as Russia. South Africa came in 3rd place with 3,000 tons. As a result, the metal has made it onto the list of critical raw materials in the US and Europe. In addition to common applications in steel production, catalysts and aerospace, the raw material is now coming into focus because of new vanadium redox batteries that can be used as energy storage devices and have a longer lifespan. The batteries are scalable, safer, and more environmentally friendly and can thus contribute to the energy transition. Commercialization is already starting, but vanadium is scarce.
