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

Vonovia, Desert Gold Ventures, Daimler Truck - Solid growth surprises investors
Vonovia has secured a strong US partner to further secure its real estate business in Germany. Proceeds from the investment will support Vonovia's capital allocation plans while giving Apollo's insurance and institutional clients access to a portfolio of long-term, high-quality assets. High quality is also the acreage Desert Gold Ventures is exploring in Mali, Africa. New gold exploration areas have been defined that show promise. Gold will continue to gain importance in the near future, as it is a valuable component of numerous solutions in the energy transition. According to Daimler Truck CEO Daum, progress is still far too slow. But the Q1/23 result exceeds all expectations.Read

dynaCERT, Daimler Truck, Plug Power - Into the future with hydrogen solutions
We are at the beginning of a new era of sustainability and efficiency. The consumption of fossil fuels in Western industrial nations is to be significantly reduced in the coming years. However, alternatives are needed. The future of energy supply could lie in hydrogen. Using electrolysis, water is broken down into its components: oxygen and hydrogen. The clean fuel produced can then be used directly or stored to produce electricity when needed. If renewable energy sources are used to produce green hydrogen, there will be no CO2 emissions. Today we look at three companies using hydrogen technology for their products.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

E.ON, Smartbroker Holding, Daimler Truck - Optimistic about the future
Despite challenging market conditions with high raw material and energy prices, many companies beat analysts' forecasts for the full year 2022 in the slowly fading figures season. There is no question that the current fiscal year is also likely to be shaped by many external uncertainty factors. Nevertheless, many companies are defying the negative conditions and are on the verge of setting new records in 2023.Read

BYD, First Hydrogen, Daimler Truck - Battle of the drive systems
In recent years, the debate about the future of mobility has focused heavily on conventional passenger cars. Yet it is commercial vehicles that are responsible for the majority of emissions. Here, the competition between electromobility and hydrogen as drive systems for trucks and vans is now moving into the focus of the discussion. While electromobility has been on the rise for several years, hydrogen is also gaining in importance as an alternative drive system. In contrast to batteries, fuel cell vehicles can achieve a significantly greater range with hydrogen. Another advantage of hydrogen as a propulsion system is the short refueling time. Today, we look at three companies that are taking different approaches.Read

BYD, First Hydrogen, Daimler Truck - Green solutions as a booster for the portfolio
With the climate crisis worsening, the need for viable solutions and systems to reduce emissions is greater than ever. One area that has a major impact on emissions is freight transport. As the demand for freight transportation increases, so does the emissions released into the atmosphere. This not only has a serious impact on the environment but also affects the sustainability of the freight transport industry. So the question is, what kind of drive system will prevail in freight transport? Will it be electric propulsion or hydrogen propulsion with its fuel cells? We take a look at three companies that are focusing on different drive systems.Read

Daimler Truck, First Hydrogen, Plug Power - Transportation industry in upheaval: Which shares will profit?
In the EU, a quarter of all CO2 emissions are caused by road traffic. Here, the transport industry, with its diesel engines, plays a major role. If the ambitious climate targets are to be achieved by 2030, the industry will have to undergo a major transformation. Road freight transport alone is expected to reduce emissions by 26% by the end of the decade. For a long time, electromobility was seen as the solution, but it is becoming increasingly clear that hydrogen will also be an option. It always depends on the use case, and at the same time, the infrastructure must be in place for the technology in question. So today, we look at three companies that could benefit from fleet modernization.Read

Hydrogen - the fuel for transportation and logistics stocks: Plug Power, dynaCERT, ThyssenKrupp, and Daimler Truck with imagination
Hydrogen technology finally seems to be gaining momentum on the industrial side. Time and again, companies such as Plug Power or Nel ASA are reporting various orders from the private and public sectors. Unfortunately, conventional diesel drives still dominate the transportation and logistics sector. However, the exhibitors at the IAA Transportation in Hannover have quite different goals: They want to lead truck transport into a climate-neutral logistics era. This requires a willingness to invest and appropriate technological support. Fleet operators, meanwhile, are already shuffling their feet and waiting for the producers to give the green light. There are great opportunities for investors to be involved right from the start.Read

Daimler Truck, dynaCERT, Nikola - Which transportation stocks are taking off?
The transportation industry faces many challenges. These were addressed on July 15 at the 15th Truck Symposium, hosted at Nürburgring. Here, 110 experts discussed staff shortages, lack of parking spaces and new drive concepts. The latter is still the subject of controversial debate. Are fully electric transport vehicles the future, or will the hydrogen fuel cell prevail? The fact is that the transport industry must significantly reduce its emissions by 2030. Today, we look at three companies that offer solutions for lower CO2 emissions.Read
