dynaCERT Inc., NEL ASA, Plug Power Inc. - who will reach the profit zone first?

  • Hydrogen

Mobility is changing and new technology is being tested. Vehicle manufacturers around the world are testing different engines and solutions to reduce fuel consumption and improve the energy balance. In addition to hybrid solutions, pure battery vehicles are also being tested. There are still many challenges with batteries to which there do not seem to be any solutions at present. A battery vehicle, for example, does not emit any exhaust gases, but the electricity for charging must come from somewhere, and the possibilities of obtaining the contents of a battery are also questionable from an environmental protection perspective. But there are interesting alternatives.

Hydrogen makes diesel greener

In the field of hydrogen technologies, dynaCERT Inc. from Toronto, Canada, has been researching for around 15 years and since this year has been able to offer a standard solution for existing diesel engines. The dynaCERT devices are suitable for retrofitting diesel engines of any kind. Depending on the application, savings of up to 19% in diesel fuel consumption are possible. The company's technology generates hydrogen on demand and adds it to the combustion in the engine via the air supply.

Hydrogen does not function as a fuel, but as a catalyst. With a quantity of one litre of commercially available distilled water, a truck can cover a distance of around 5,000 kilometres with the savings effects. By increasing the efficiency, the engine also emits considerably fewer pollutants. According to the company's website, independent tests have shown reductions of up to 88% in NOx emissions. Particulate matter emissions were reduced by up to 55% and CO2 emissions by 9%.

Hydrogen technology for retrofitting

In addition to the effects of reducing fuel consumption and emissions, dynaCERT's technology offers a significant advantage over other technologies currently being tested - it can retrofit existing diesel engines now and in the future.

This advantage has also been recognized by two well-known market players and is why they have joined dynaCERT. Firstly, the German MOSOLF Group, which has a European sales network with automotive suppliers, and Eric Sprott, one of the wealthiest Canadians. Sprott is known as a commodity investor and therefore knows the industry's dependence on diesel engines. dynaCERT's solution helps mining companies work above and below ground to save fuel and prevent emissions.

Germany has over 14,000 petrol stations

The companies NEL ASA and Plug Power Inc. are focusing on hydrogen as a fuel. NEL from Norway develops and manufactures plants for the production of hydrogen, which can then be used for the expansion of a hydrogen filling station network. Germany currently has a filling station network with over 14,000 petrol and diesel pumps.

If the future of mobility is based on hydrogen, then a similar number of plants would be realistic for Germany and a giant market for NEL - but it will take a while until the change is so far advanced.

dynaCERT has the lowest market capitalization

Plug Power from the USA does not only build plants for the production of hydrogen, but is also focused on the development of fuel cells. The company announced yesterday a USD 40 million capital increase.

Plug Power currently has a market value of around EUR 870 million and NEL of EUR 950 million. dynaCERT is traded on the stock exchange at around EUR 110 million and is expected to reach the profit zone first of the companies mentioned - this impression is conveyed at least by a look at the latest quarterly reports of these companies.


Conflict of interest & risk note

In accordance with §34b WpHG we would like to point out that Apaton Finance GmbH as well as partners, authors or employees of Apaton Finance GmbH may hold shares in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

dynaCERT, Plug Power, Powercell Sweden - which stocks have the highest potential?

  • Hydrogen

Last week the shares of hydrogen companies were traded volatile. Profit-taking combined with the general panic on the stock markets caused sharp price losses. Those who have so far only watched from the sidelines can now enter the market. According to the motto: 'be greedy when others are fearful', investors have been able to take advantage of attractive entry prices in recent days. It is now becoming clear that central banks and governments are concertedly tackling the consequences of the current corona virus for the economy, and the DAX and DOW have already moved away from their lows.

Ballard Power, dynaCERT, NEL ASA - will a major event double the hydrogen share?

  • Hydrogen

The three international companies Ballard Power, dynaCERT and NEL ASA are working on hydrogen as an energy carrier for modern mobility. The changes in motorized transportation are currently being driven by politics and are a springboard for innovative companies. The biggest challenge in this context is cost efficiency and environmental balance. Hydrogen is seen as a beacon of hope for a clean and economically attractive way to reduce the emission of pollutants from road traffic in conurbations. For investors there are highly interesting opportunities.

Ballard Power, dynaCERT, NEL ASA - where else is it worth investing?

  • Hydrogen

For investors, rising share prices are a confirmation of a successful investment decision. However, experienced market participants also know that from time to time it makes sense to take chips off the table - in other words, to realize profits. It is both important and difficult to assess the market potential of innovations. If a share has doubled in value, it does not necessarily mean that it will only be half as attractive from now on. In the context of social trends, topics can generate investor demand for a much longer period of time and more intensively.
