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.

SMA Solar, dynaCERT, TotalEnergies - Good for the climate, good for your portfolio!

  • Hydrogen

The signs of the times are climate protection: In America, Joe Biden is trying to push his Green New Deal through the legislature, China is phasing out the construction of coal-fired power plants, and in Germany, the Greens will most likely be part of the next government. Industry is also rethinking its position. Recently, an alliance of 69 leading German companies called for an "implementation offensive for climate neutrality" within the first 100 days of a new government. Signatories included heavyweights such as SAP, E.ON and Bayer. The following three stocks should get a tailwind from the new climate awareness.

Nel ASA, dynaCERT, Plug Power - Hydrogen is part of the energy turnaround

  • Hydrogen

If the upcoming German government wants to achieve the energy transition and banish all fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas, part of the solution lies with hydrogen. On particularly sunny or windy days, some of the green electricity generated is simply lost. To avoid overloading the power lines, some of the electricity is given away abroad. Using this energy to produce green hydrogen would make the energy produced both storable and portable. If the price per kg of hydrogen could be reduced significantly, the greatest potential for this technology would automatically arise.

Varta, Enapter, NEL: Where hydrogen pays off directly

It is turnaround time! Never before in history will so much be changing as in the next five years. The energy turnaround is switching our supply to renewable energy sources and new storage options, and the mobility turnaround will ensure that electric motors will soon dominate the roads. Although it is clear where the journey is headed, shares based on the new technology offer highly diverse opportunities. We take a look at three stocks.
