Modern society unites one goal, the world should become cleaner and more environmentally friendly. Responsible companies continuously strive to implement ways to improve the way they interact with people and nature. In line with citizens' desires for greater prosperity and security, advances in mobility and energy supply are among the priorities of politics and business. Hydrogen will become increasingly important in the coming years, but innovative technologies for now and today, based on existing engines, will make a valuable contribution to environmental protection. It is best to start positioning yourself now for the time after the corona crisis.

About the author


CleanTech expert comes on board

Yesterday evening, just before the close of the market hours in Canada, the young oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas announced a change in the Board of Directors which is quite a feat. Jim Payne, CEO of dynaCERT, is now on board and will support the company in ESG matters. dynaCERT was recently honored by the Toronto Stock Exchange as the most successful company in all sectors. In 2019, the CleanTech company's share price has risen by 284% and its market capitalization has increased by 384%.

Hydrogen technology for retrofitting

The timing for this cooperation could hardly have been better. Since the collapse of oil prices last weekend, the energy industry has been under enormous pressure to reduce costs. dynaCERT recently brought its patented hydrogen technology for retrofitting called HydraGEN to market, which can increase the efficiency of diesel engines and reduce fuel consumption by up to 20%. In addition, NOx emissions are reduced by up to 88%. The emission of particulate matter can be reduced by up to 55% and that of CO2 by up to 10%. HydraGEN therefore offers enormous advantages for diesel generators and tank trucks in the oil industry.

Synergies on many levels

For dynaCERT and Saturn Oil & Gas, this type of pilot project results in a win-win situation. dynaCERT gains valuable access to the oil industry through cooperation at the management level. Saturn Oil & Gas can with HydraGEN reduce the costs of the drilling programs and in operations. As a valuable side effect, oil production becomes more environmentally friendly. Modern society will continue to depend on oil in the future, making it all the more important to use the latest technologies in production to protect the environment.

"(...) I am looking forward to supporting Saturn and its CEO, John Jeffrey, in fostering the Company as a responsible citizen in the global carbon reduction community, side-by-side with the professional international dynaCERT team," said Jim Payne.

Barriers to market entry for fuel cells

For NEL ASA, the fall in oil prices may have a negative impact, as there may be less need for potential customers and users to build a hydrogen infrastructure. The Norwegian company specializes in the development and marketing of hydrogen production plants and filling stations. Given that on the side of car manufacturers there are only a few vehicle models with fuel cells available, this technology is still at an early stage with capital-intensive barriers to market entry.

Revolution in the Oil Industry

The market value of dynaCERT was EUR 180 million at the close of trading yesterday. NEL ASA closed with a market capitalization of EUR 1.17 billion and Saturn Oil & Gas was valued at EUR 16 million. The oil producer's potential is likely to have increased with the support of Jim Payne as CleanTech expert. John Jeffrey, CEO of Saturn Oil & Gas, had already expressed his interest in acquisitions in the past. A low oil price is likely to lower the price of potential acquisitions at this time. In the first nine months of 2019, sales already increased organically by 352% to CAD 13.8 million and the bottom line was a profit of CAD 2.3 million. The company is now in the starting position to grow into a major environmentally friendly oil producer and revolutionize the industry.

BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, OMV - Sector rotation for investment success in 2021!

  • Energy

Technology stocks were among the darlings of investors in 2020. However, in the meantime, company valuations in this sector have soared to dizzying heights reminiscent of the Neuer Markt boom. Thus, it could be very worthwhile to take a look at the losers of the past year. Oil stocks posted red signs in the face of a 22% drop in the commodity price. But now the situation should change. Leading economic research institutes are forecasting global economic growth of over 4% in the new year. The oil price should also continue to rise, Goldman Sachs even sees upside potential of 30%. We show you which stocks will help you profit.

Saturn Oil & Gas, BP, Royal Dutch Shell: Now the right oil stock!

  • Energy

The stock market is like a pendulum that swings back and forth. The year 2020 was undoubtedly the year of electromobility - just one look at Tesla with its USD 600 billion capitalization is enough - and a year for the "hype topic" hydrogen, which though still needs at least 3 years of research and development for series production. Both are much-discussed alternatives to oil and other fossil fuels. Unfortunately, this comparison is somewhat misleading, as significant amounts of oil and coal are still used to generate both electricity and hydrogen. The drivers of electric vehicles like to pat themselves on the back because of their political compensation. Still, there is now a consensus in the research community that electric propulsion systems on a broad scale can in no way be described as a solution for sustainable economic activity. On the government side, of course, there are great tax incentives that probably reflect the intrinsic motivation of the e-belief community to a huge extent. However, if the battery goes on strike in the winter, fortunately, you still have the V8 in the private garage.

Plug Power, Saturn Oil & Gas, JinkoSolar - Leverage your depot!

  • Energy

Successful tests and the imminent prospect of a vaccine against the coronavirus are causing the price of oil to explode. After the low in Brent oil in March at just under USD 18.00, the black gold more than doubled and is currently trading at USD 48.50. Even former pessimists such as the Bank of America see the price continuing to rise and forecast USD 60.00 per barrel by next summer. The easing of restrictions will lead to an increase in oil demand, according to the experts. Anyone who trades with leverage and wants to achieve disproportionate price gains should now look for promising oil producers.
