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

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.

Nel ASA, Enapter, JinkoSolar - Hydrogen: this is going too far!

  • Hydrogen

There is no question that the future belongs to the hydrogen industry, just as it does to the solar industry. The prospects for renewable energies have improved enormously as a result of climate change. The European Union is pushing ahead as part of the Green Deal, as is the new US President Joe Biden, who wants to achieve an emission-free industry by 2050 at the latest. The result has been two years of hype in share prices, which already contain many future dreams. Now the values are correcting sharply. Is this an end to the exaggerated valuations or merely a short, sharp correction in the upward trend?

BYD, dynaCERT, Plug Power: Three shares for the next five years

  • Hydrogen

The future of mobility will not involve combustion engines - that much seems certain. But which technology will win the race? E-cars with appropriate batteries or fuel cells? Is it possible that technologies make valuable combustion engines or expensive machines with diesel engines "greener" and thus save essential resources? We introduce three companies and do the future check: What are the prospects for the coming years?

Enapter, Ballard Power, Plug Power, Nikola - The never-ending hydrogen story!

  • Hydrogen

In principle, hydrogen could cover all of our energy needs and chemically replace many fossil carbons. A few examples are climate-neutral fuel for power supply and mobility, manufacturing processes in the steel or chemical industry, as a fuel for heat supply, or as a storage medium for green electricity. The lowest atomic mass element can do all of this; only the universe plays a trick on humankind. The most abundant atom in the universe is virtually non-existent in pure form on our home planet. So, we have to "manufacture" it. Electrolysis, for example, uses electricity to break down water into the elements hydrogen and oxygen.
