An outperformer for investors
The shares of the car manufacturer Daimler have lost more than 38% in value in the past 12 months. In addition to the corona pandemic, future energy sources and storage facilities are the main sources of uncertainty. There are still no solutions for the recycling of lithium batteries and for hydrogen there is a lack of supply infrastructure.
In contrast, the shares of the engine retrofitter dynaCERT, which has brought an innovative hydrogen technology to market readiness that will make diesel engines green, have gained more than 112%. NEL, a company that focuses on the development and manufacture of hydrogen production plants, gained around 24% over the same period. If this energy source is to have a future, then government subsidies in particular promise lucrative sales. By contrast, investors in the wind turbine manufacturer Nordex are facing a 46% loss in value.
Valuation with potential
Daimler's market capitalization has shrunk to EUR 33.5 billion since May 2019. The topic of hydrogen became the focus of attention for the energy industry last year, and NEL's market capitalization increased to EUR 1.5 billion. The development of a supply network has enormous potential.
Most recently, Nordex was worth only EUR 775 million and thus slipped well below the billion EUR threshold. The innovative company dynaCERT more than doubled its market capitalization to around EUR 160 million at the most recent date. The company's latest announcement gives reason to assume that the valuation will continue to rise in the coming months and years.
Environmental protection goes over climate marketing
The terms environmental protection and climate change are often lumped together. It is undisputed that the environment can be protected. Less consumption, less emissions, less waste, everything protects the environment, but climate change is an overriding marketing term that is both activist and misleading. The climate has been changing for millions of years, since the planet was created. Periods of heat and cold alternate.
At the moment the climate is warming up, that's true, but no one can prove whether the purchase of electric cars will cool the climate down again or reduce the temperature warming. What if the climate cools down again significantly over the next twenty years? What actions and purchases will then bring about changes in the opposite direction again? We live in a business world, so be careful about politically motivated actionism.
Environmental pollution through recycling problems
The German Federal Environment Agency has found that the country is not sufficiently prepared for the recycling of end-of-life wind turbines. In a communication from the office, it says: "There is a risk of bottlenecks in recycling capacities and risks to people and the environment if dismantling is not carried out properly." The promotion of wind turbines with tax money is being phased out nationwide, and the turbines are becoming more inefficient and less powerful as they run.
Thousands of wind turbines, which at that time were considered the hope for the energy turnaround, are now becoming an environmental burden. Even the ongoing operation of wind turbines is not without controversy. They kill insects and birds. The shadows and noises are a nuisance to the local residents and, in addition, the landscape is being significantly altered. A perfect energy turnaround and careful use of taxpayers' money looks different - one might justifiably think so now.
Relief for taxpayers and the environment
dynaCERT offers a solution for now and today with a hydrogen technology for retrofitting diesel engines. Worldwide, there are currently over one billion diesel engines running as generators, on ships, in trucks and cars. With dynaCERT's HydraGEN (TM) technology the engines can be retrofitted and fuel consumption can be reduced by up to 20%. NOx emissions are reduced by up to 88%, particulate matter by up to 55% and CO2 by up to almost 10%.
The company offers the devices in subscription models, among other things, which can be of particular interest to operators of bus and truck fleets. As a result, dynaCERT receives permanent income that can exceed sales proceeds, and the one-time charge for the customer is reduced. Subsidizing with taxpayers' money is not an issue so far and there is no need to replace vehicles - reducing the burden on taxpayers and the environment. For investors, this results in a sustainable investment opportunity. With Dr. Jörg Mosolf, one of the largest European logistics companies, and the Canadian billionaire Eric Sprott, two experienced personalities have already invested in the company.
