BYD, Globex Mining, First Hydrogen - Breakthrough results
Despite all the prophecies of doom, the world's stock markets are continuing their upward trend; neither the strict monetary policy of the central banks nor the geopolitical uncertainties have slowed them down so far. Among individual stocks, several companies have reported positive surprises in recent weeks, which should lead to further price increases in the long term. Due to the general correction in recent months, there are attractive entry opportunities, especially in the technology and mining sectors.Read

Nel ASA, First Hydrogen, Plug Power - Paving the way for hydrogen technology
Germany has shut down its nuclear power plants, and now the expansion of renewable energies is to be accelerated. But what happens to the surplus electricity when the sun shines all day? In order not to overload the grids, the energy is given away to neighbouring countries. In the future, it will be turned into green hydrogen that can cover the energy needs of industry and the transport sector. On May 25, the Federal Cabinet passed an amendment to the Energy Industry Act that defines the legal framework for a future hydrogen core network in Germany. Hydrogen technology will not only prevail in Germany. We, therefore, take a look at three international hydrogen companies.Read

DAX on a record chase, and hydrogen is making a comeback! VW, Daimler Truck, First Hydrogen, Traton. Who can convince?
The EU wants to invest about EUR 25 billion in hydrogen over the next 10 years. To this end, the Commission has drafted the concept of a "Hydrogen Accelerator" to promote the use of renewable hydrogen. The "REPowerEU plan" launched for this purpose aims to produce 10 million tons of renewable hydrogen within the EU by 2030 and to import a further 10 million tons. It is hoped that this will provide an important building block for saving the climate. The private sector is also involved. We take a look at some of the key players.Read

Thanks to Macron: Special boom for fuel cells? Plug Power, First Hydrogen, Volkswagen
It is a bombshell announcement that is expected to be made by the French Cabinet in Paris this week. As reported by Handelsblatt, in the future, emissions generated during the production of electric vehicles will be taken into account when promoting these vehicles. Until now, France, similar to Germany, has provided incentives for each electric vehicle priced below EUR 47,000. With the new law, Chinese manufacturers could be left out. We look at what this means and why hydrogen could be heading towards a special boom.Read

Panic at Plug Power: Hydrogen specialists Nel and First Hydrogen convince
Is the wheat being separated from the chaff in the hydrogen sector? This is the impression one could get in the last few weeks. First, Nel convinced with its quarterly figures. The Norwegians are finally getting a grip on their margins and are building the next gigawatt factory in the US. First Hydrogen is also investing in North America. A new site for the production of hydrogen and fuel cell commercial vehicles is to be built in Canada. Plug Power, on the other hand, has its work cut out. The US company disappointed with its quarterly figures on Monday evening. In addition, capital measures were announced. The share price fell by almost 10% in German trading yesterday.Read

Nel ASA, First Hydrogen, Volkswagen - Funding paves the way for green hydrogen
After the USD 750 billion US climate package, the European Union followed suit with the Green Deal Industrial Plan to remain competitive. At the end of March, the "EU Renewable Energy Directive" was rewritten with the goal of sourcing 45% of total power from renewables by 2030. This will add more speed to the expansion of renewable energies, which will ultimately also help hydrogen technology. The more green electricity is available, the cheaper green hydrogen becomes. At least EUR 100 billion are to be made available as subsidies by 2030. Today we look at 3 companies that could benefit from the subsidies.Read

DAX in the Easter rally! Plug Power, First Hydrogen, Nel, Thyssenkrupp - Buy hydrogen selectively
The 3 Cs are currently doing the rounds: conflict, crisis and climate change. We cannot influence the war, but there seem to be many vested interests that can exploit the geopolitical uncertainty for their own benefit. With Credit Suisse, the potential crisis took shape again for the first time since 2008, but it has been averted for the time being. Then there is climate change, which we do feel from time to time. It is not only through the actions of the Last Generation that many measures have been taken, and more are being taken every day. In the discussion on sustainable energy production, there is a lot of confidence in hydrogen that the industrial breakthrough is imminent. What values should investors keep their eyes on?Read

New hydrogen stars First Hydrogen and SMA Solar - how is the share of Plug Power?
Are we currently seeing a change of favourites in cleantech stocks, particularly in the hydrogen sector? With Plug Power and Nel ASA, investors seem to be losing hope in profitable business models. Yet Plug Power has just reported a record. In contrast, First Hydrogen is going from strength to strength. While the commercial hydrogen vehicles are currently being tested in practice, the next generation of vehicles has been presented. Analysts continue to regard the share as undervalued. SMA Solar is increasingly becoming a cleantech powerhouse. The solar specialist is expanding its product portfolio in the smart home market and wants to get involved in the hydrogen sector.Read

Subsidies beckon, shareholders profit: Volkswagen, NEL, First Hydrogen
Money from the state comes in handy for many companies. This is especially true when the challenges are great, and the capital requirements are immense. For large industrial companies, subsidies have always been part of the package. Just recently, Volkswagen, for example, picked up money in South Carolina. We explain in which industries there is also something "to be had" for shareholders.Read

First Hydrogen, Volkswagen, Daimler Truck - The unstoppable energy transition, who is winning the race?
Canadian fuel cell manufacturer Ballard Power joins First Hydrogen for LCV test drive. The two companies are cooperating to produce the world's first hydrogen-powered vans. According to expert forecasts, the logistics industry will be worth EUR 13.7 billions by 2027. Change at Volkswagen's premium Audi brand is proceeding rather sluggishly. The regulations imposed by the EU are causing problems for CEO Duesmann, who sees it as unrealistic to implement everything that Brussels demands by 2025. Daimler Truck, on the other hand, is looking forward to a major order that will soon get 1.8 million people in the Hamburg metropolitan region moving. The Hamburg-Holstein transport authority signs a major order.Read
