Shell, Saturn Oil + Gas, Plug Power - Energy stocks in focus

  • Oil

Oil prices remain in bullish mode, reaching a new seven-year high. The latest increase was due to an explosion of a critical oil pipeline between Iraq and Turkey, through which up to 450,000 barrels of crude oil are transported daily. In general, the supply situation remains tight. OPEC expects a further increase in global oil demand. The primary beneficiaries of this supply shortage are oil producers; they were already able to post record results last year.

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.

Nel, Plug Power, First Hydrogen, FuelCell Energy - Hydrogen versus Tesla!

  • Hydrogen

The year 2021 must be defined as the real dawn of electric mobility. Worldwide, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of electric vehicles sold. According to Statista, the shares of the total German passenger car population in 2021 rose to no less than 1.22% of registered vehicles. 3 years earlier, it was only 0.25%. There has been real movement in the new registration figures, with the share of hybrid and purely electric vehicles now at 6.9% and 6.7%, respectively. Therefore, the number of e-vehicles will gradually increase, as every 16th newly registered vehicle no longer has an internal combustion engine. However, after the 2021 climate conference in Glasgow, there was another political commitment to a progressive technology: hydrogen propulsion!

Nel ASA, dynaCERT, Plug Power - The resurrection of hydrogen stocks

  • Hydrogen

The past year 2021, was anything but a successful one for stocks from the hydrogen and fuel cell sector. After a brilliant boom in the decade's first year, the signs pointed to correction. However, given the energy transition and the importance of hydrogen fuel cell technology, this sector, in particular, could experience a resurgence in the new year. The German Federal Ministry of Economics, led by Green Party politician Robert Habeck, released EUR 900 million for the "H2Global" funding instrument.

NEL, dynaCERT, Plug Power, FuelCell Energy - An explosive scenario for hydrogen in 2022!

  • Hydrogen

In 2021, the "hydrogen" topic was played exclusively on the stock exchange. Much advance praise was given to an industry that has to fight for future budgets with a broad consensus favoring e-mobility. But with the tightening of climate targets in the EU, North America and Asia, the H2 issue is taking on new relevance. If it is not the propulsion systems, hydrogen is particularly suitable in decentralized energy supply, high-tech industry and even for electricity storage of surplus green energy. Should the efficiency of green hydrogen production increase, H2 would be a good energy store because it can be transported over long distances without significant losses. The same cannot be said of power transmission in overhead lines. We evaluate the opportunities of individual players.

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.

Clean Logistics, Plug Power, Nel, FuelCell Energy - 2022, let's go hydrogen!

  • Hydrogen

Germany is focusing primarily on green electricity from wind and sun due to climate protection. It can already be used comparatively effectively in e-cars, for example. However, this is far more difficult in industry: Fuels such as oil, coke or gas are to be replaced by hydrogen in steel, chemical and cement production. The situation is similar in shipping, aviation and heavy goods transport, where it isn't easy to run on electricity. The rise in fossil fuel prices increases the pressure to switch to alternative energies and new drive concepts. The year 2022 could set an important starting point.

Shares with top news: Plug Power, BioNTech, Prospect Ridge

  • Gold

Inflation fears and uncertainty about the impact of the Omicron variant on the course of the Corona pandemic are currently driving stock prices. These are very volatile, with a downward tendency. Highflyers such as Plug Power and BioNTech have also corrected significantly. However, there is positive news about both companies. Plug Power reports further cooperation in the USA to reach the medium-term delivery targets, and BioNTech's vaccine protects against severe disease progression at Omicron. The vaccine is in short supply in Germany. There were several pieces of positive news recently from Prospect Ridge Resources. The gold explorer seems to be sitting on a real treasure.

Nel ASA, Clean Logistics, Plug Power - Is hydrogen fuel for the depot again?

  • Hydrogen

The coalition agreement of the new traffic light government has been in place since November 24. Achieving the set climate targets is at the top of the agenda. One of the cornerstones is the use of green hydrogen, and so it is essential to increase electrolysis capacity in the coming years. Investments in the development of infrastructures for hydrogen are also to receive financial support. There is also to be a quota for public procurement. What the future hydrogen strategy will look like is to be announced in more detail in an update in 2022. Countries within the EU are also to cooperate more closely in this area. We, therefore, take a look at three companies from the hydrogen sector.
