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, dynaCERT, Plug Power - Hydrogen: First the crash, now the rebound?

    • Hydrogen

    Elon Musk has been considered an absolute star on the stock market since 2021. First PayPal, then Tesla and later SpaceX. He is an ingenious entrepreneur with almost clairvoyant abilities when it comes to future megatrends. Because whatever he touches becomes a hot topic overnight. However, he smiles at the hype surrounding hydrogen. After all, he is one of the loudest critics of this technology. He has repeatedly called it "stupid" to use electricity to produce hydrogen to power a fuel cell, which in turn generates electricity. Fuel cells are "fool cells" in his eyes. So why do H2 values have their relevance on the stock market after all?

    Energy prices are going through the roof. Anyone who has to change their energy supplier these days is in for a surprise. Surcharges of 50% and more for electricity and gas are not uncommon. In this context, questions about the drives of the future are becoming louder again. Although hydrogen also has a high energy requirement, the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology promotes green hydrogen as a lower levy under the Renewable Energy Sources Act. Reason enough to take a closer look at some stocks related to hydrogen and mobility.

    dynaCERT, Plug Power, Nikola - Will hydrogen be the comeback of 2022?

    • Hydrogen

    Electromobility is an important building block for reducing CO2 emissions. However, batteries are not efficient enough due to their limited range and long charging times, especially in heavy-duty traffic. The most promising technology is hydrogen. However, after a veritable hype last year, many values experienced an abrupt crash after it became clear that the necessary infrastructure was not yet ready. But in 2022, the course could slowly be set, and hydrogen stocks could make the comeback of the year. We took a closer look at three promising candidates.
