Battery vs. hydrogen! Buy Nel ASA now? Or is FREYR Battery or Altech Advanced Materials better?

  • Innovations
  • Batteries
  • renewableenergies

Should investors bet on battery stocks over hydrogen stocks? At least when looking at investor darlings like Nel and Plug Power, the answer to this question seems to be "yes" at the moment. The Nel share, in particular, has been hit hard. In local currency, it is trading at its lowest level since the beginning of 2020. Is there hope for a rebound? Or are investors better off betting on battery newcomers like FREYR Battery or Altech Advanced Materials? In terms of share price, Germany's Altech has been the best performer this year, and at the recent Capital Markets Day, management expressed confidence that it would soon take the battery market by storm. So, what is the current status of hopes for hydrogen and batteries?

While the IAA Mobility ended with satisfied faces, it did not bring good vibes to local automotive stocks. More than 500,000 visitors attended to be convinced of innovations for a climate-friendly future. Half of the 750 exhibitors came from abroad, and 109 nations were represented. However, those who went with the expectation of finding major breakthroughs were disappointed. The familiar lithium-ion battery still dominates with over 95% usage. Industrially viable alternatives, however, are already in the development stage. Those who think ahead are opting for modern battery concepts.

The booming energy storage market will bring investments of USD 620 billion over the next 22 years, according to BloombergNEF. In this context, the focus shifts to Heidelberg-based Altech Advanced Materials AG, which specializes in emission-free energy storage solutions. Their innovative approach to generating energy from an abundant raw material in Europe - salt - is worth highlighting. Volkswagen is also striving for seamless supply in the electrification market and is re-sorting its semiconductor supply chains with the help of German taxpayer money. At Norway's FREYR Battery, quarterly results are in, surprising analysts.

Plug Power, JinkoSolar, Altech Advanced Materials: Only one share is strong

The stock market is currently on shaky ground. In such times, it is worth considering stocks that show relative strength. Which renewable energy company falls into this category? Hydrogen specialist Plug Power disappointed again with its latest quarterly figures. And now analysts are also losing patience. In contrast, JinkoSolar has increased its half-year profit by over 300%. However, the shares of the Chinese solar group are trading lower than they have in a long time. The shares of Altech Advanced Materials - also listed on XETRA since July - are among the German stock market stars of 2023 with a plus of 250%. But is there more in store? After all, the Company aims to revolutionize the battery market and even outshine the new Tesla battery.

Which now? Battery power or hydrogen? BYD, Altech Advanced Materials, BASF, Nikola Motors

  • Hydrogen
  • GreenTech
  • Electromobility
  • Batteries
  • fuelcell

The question of what future mobility will look like has yet to be entirely resolved. Currently, the governments in office are propagating the electric drive. However, after the fire on the "Fremantle Highway" in the North Sea, the question of the safety of the Li-ion batteries currently in use has arisen again. And who will pay for the EUR 500 million damage to the wrecked freighter? This does not even take into account the possible ecological inferno for the North Sea. EV batteries are expensive and require enormous resources to produce, yet there is no legal obligation to dispose of used batteries properly. Very short-term thinking, but Berlin is currently shining on issues of a curious nature. Where are the opportunities for us investors?
