dynaCERT, NEL ASA, Saturn Oil & Gas - Revolution of an industry

  • Energy

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.

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.

NEL ASA, Saturn Oil & Gas, VARTA - which energy share is the best?

  • Energy

Energy sources and storage facilities are topics of the present and future. The more modern a society is, the higher the priority of cleanliness and moral innocuousness. Mobility in rich countries is undergoing change. In conurbations, the aim is increasingly being pursued to electrify motorised transport. Electricity flows into the grid from predominantly nuclear power plants as well as power plants using fossil fuels and can be used to produce hydrogen as an energy storage medium or to charge batteries. The share of electricity from renewable energies has increased worldwide from 18.6% to 25.1% in the years from 2008 to 2018.

Ballard Power, NEL ASA, Plug Power - and where real money is made today

  • Energy

The change in mobility is one of the most challenging issues of our time. German carmakers are currently focusing on the launch of battery cars in order to meet the increasingly stringent exhaust emission requirements of the European Union. From the user's point of view, electric mobility based on batteries and the idea of several million charging points at the roadsides and parking lots are reminiscent of the days of horse-drawn carriages. But this comparison is not accurate, because horses have not caused environmental damage in other parts of the world. In Germany there is an established network of over 14,000 gas stations and it is no secret that hydrogen takes about the same time to fill up as combustion engines. Why not the hydrogen car now?
