dynaCERT, Plug Power, Nikola - Will hydrogen be the comeback of 2022?

  • Hydrogen

Electromobility is an important building block for reducing CO2 emissions. However, batteries are not efficient enough due to their limited range and long charging times, especially in heavy-duty traffic. The most promising technology is hydrogen. However, after a veritable hype last year, many values experienced an abrupt crash after it became clear that the necessary infrastructure was not yet ready. But in 2022, the course could slowly be set, and hydrogen stocks could make the comeback of the year. We took a closer look at three promising candidates.

Daimler, Noram Lithium, Nikola - This is the breakthrough

  • Lithium

The global race to achieve set climate targets is on in (almost) all countries. The transport sector poses a particular challenge. Despite the development of more efficient vehicles, CO2 emissions have risen over the past twenty years. The switch from cars with combustion engines to alternative energy sources must be further accelerated. While battery-powered vehicles are ahead in the passenger car sector, fuel cells are more appealing for heavier vehicles.

Nikola, Clean Logistics, Plug Power - Drastic measures required

  • Hydrogen

Germany raised its climate targets in the middle of this year and adopted binding emissions targets for the years up to 2045 - the target year for climate neutrality. Alongside the energy sector and industry, Germany's biggest emitter of greenhouse gases is the transport sector. However, this is the only sector that has not reduced greenhouse gas emissions in recent decades. Commercial vehicles account for around 35% of CO2 emissions. It is precisely here that quick and precise action is needed to ensure that the rosy plans are implemented. Smaller companies in particular far outstrip the large corporations in terms of know-how.

Nikola, First Hydrogen, Plug Power - Will the transport industry rely on hydrogen?

  • Hydrogen

While the future of cars is most likely to be electric, the race in the transport industry has not yet been decided. There are electric buses, but they are more likely to be used in warmer climates. In winter, when heating is needed, electric buses are useless. The same applies to trucks and vans, as the high weight of the batteries means that some tractive power is lost here, and longer journeys also become impossible. The transport industry is responsible for a large proportion of CO2 emissions. If we want to achieve the climate targets we have set, we need a solution. Hydrogen could solve the problem, as the vehicles can be refueled much faster and the range is greater. But green hydrogen is still too expensive. Today we look at three companies working on hydrogen solutions.

BYD, dynaCERT, Nikola - Traffic of the future must protect the environment

  • Hydrogen

Today, we are more mobile than ever before. The downside of this is the environmental impact. A good 20% of global CO2 emissions are caused by traffic. Relying on e-cars alone is probably too short-sighted. In the private sector, this is quite realistic, but the electric approach does not yet work in freight transport or only at a significant loss of performance. Hydrogen could play a major role in this area in the future, but hydrogen is still too expensive per kilogram, and mass production is still a long way off. Today, we look at e-mobility and hydrogen and an alternative that could help the transportation industry in the short term.

Trucks and hydrogen as a billion-dollar business: Daimler, Clean Logistics, Nikola

  • Hydrogen

Hydrogen was the hot topic last fall: shares like NEL kept climbing. But then came the disillusionment: Alongside Tesla and BYD, more and more traditional carmakers also switched to electric cars with batteries. Hydrogen shares collapsed. But this does not mean that the technology is out of the picture. The energy carrier remains a beacon of hope for ships, trucks and even aircraft. Just recently, a German company even put a hydrogen bus on the road. We explain what hydrogen means for commercial vehicles and how investors can profit, using three shares as examples.

Nordex, Clean Logistics, Nikola - Hardly manageable changeover

  • Hydrogen

Climate neutrality must be achieved as quickly as possible. The politicians share this view at the climate conference currently taking place in Glasgow. One critical point here is the reduction of CO2 emissions from the transport sector. Unlike in the energy sector or industry, for example, CO2 emissions in the transport sector have not fallen since 1990. Most of the debate focuses on emissions from passenger cars. However, according to the Federal Environment Agency, a good 35% of transport emissions are attributable to commercial vehicles. However, a rapid changeover, as the theorists are calling for, seems almost impossible.

Nikola, Kleos Space, Xiaomi - Earth is not enough

  • Space

New technologies by adding satellites launched into space are increasingly used for a wide variety of services. Probably the most famous project is that of Tesla founder Elon Musk. The SpaceX "Starlink" project aims to make fast Internet available everywhere in every little corner of the world. In crime prevention, the view from above is also being used through the targeted use of satellite clusters. The market for this is gigantic and is still in its infancy.

BASF, dynaCERT, Nikola - These shares will be exciting

  • Hydrogen

From today until November 12, all eyes are on the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in Glasgow. Nothing less than the future of our planet and a trend reversal towards a climate-neutral economy are at stake. At the top of the agenda is the commitment of countries to reduce emissions. A company that has received little attention in the recent past is waiting in the wings with its patented technology and could soon take off. Be prepared.

Nel ASA, First Hydrogen, Nikola - Fully on schedule

  • Hydrogen

Time is pressing. From 2025, stricter emission targets issued by the European Union will apply, which gasoline and diesel engines will not meet. Due to the energy transition and decarbonization, carmakers globally are turning to battery-powered electric cars. However, electric mobility is unsuitable for transportation due to its short-range and long charging time. Here, the advantage currently lies very clearly with fuel cell technology.
