Linde, dynaCERT, Nikola - Profiting from change

With the amended Climate Protection Act, the targets for lower CO² emissions have been raised once again by the German government. Germany is to achieve greenhouse gas neutrality by 2045, and even negative emissions are targeted after 2050. To achieve this, an emergency program worth EUR 8 billion has been launched. The program aims to accelerate the decarbonization of the economy, climate-friendly mobility, and green hydrogen production, among other things. Benefit from the energy transition!

dynaCERT - The solution

One of the biggest challenges is climate protection in the transport sector. According to the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, the transport sector has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions from around 280 million tons to 150 million tons since 1990, but this is still too little for the European Union. The European Union is now demanding by law that the carbon dioxide emissions of heavy trucks, which are responsible for around 40% of all greenhouse gas emissions in Europe, be reduced by at least 15% and by as much as 30% by the end of the decade. Failure to comply with the requirements will result in severe penalties for the fleet operator. The fleet will therefore have to be re-equipped, which is likely to lead to considerable investment.

The Canadian Company dynaCERT addressed this problem more than 15 years ago and developed a far more favorable alternative for fleet operators and fleet managers. With the patented electrolysis system "HydraGEN", it is possible to reduce CO2 emissions in large diesel engines by around 19% without any loss of power by adding a small amount of hydrogen. This technology has already been used in more than 400 heavy vehicles for test runs. In addition, intelligent software has been developed by dynaCERT that documents and analyzes data such as emission savings or fuel consumption. Based on this, certificates can be generated for the CO2 saved, which can be converted into cash on the energy exchanges.

Going forward, the Company's management in Canada intends to take a leadership role in the new hydrogen economy while working with other high-level industry leaders to further enhance and expand the Company's environmental technology product line currently available on the global market. In the wake of the general market consolidation in the hydrogen sector, dynaCERT also lost more than 50% of its value and is trading at EUR 0.25. The story sounds exciting given the transformation in the transport sector due to the energy transition. Should the Canadians succeed in entering the mass market, there is no doubt that there is considerable potential.

Nikola - Sell off after indictment

One could have guessed it after the turbulences of the past months; now certainty has returned to the truck manufacturer Nikola. The public prosecutor's office in New York has filed charges against Trevor Milton, the Nikola founder who resigned in September 2020 after allegations of fraud. The indictment alleges that Milton misled investors who invested in Nikola based on misrepresentations about the products and subsequently lost money. The indictment, which closely resembles the Hindenburg Research trial, includes three counts of fraud. In September of last year, Hindenburg Research had accused Nikola of merely rolling its prototype ride-on device down a sloping road without propulsion. The defendant pleaded not guilty to all charges and was initially released on USD 100 million bail.

Nikola expressed that the lawsuit was personally against Milton and not the Company. "We remain committed to our announced milestones and timelines and are focused on delivering Nikola Tre battery-electric trucks from the company's manufacturing facilities later this year," the statement said. In the wake of the court ruling, the stock plunged double digits and sits at the USD 11.80 support line. Although new management has seen success in operations over the past week, uncertainty remains. Nikola is only suitable for investors who are willing to take risks.

Linde - Another forecast increase

After another record quarter, the largest industrial gases group Linde raised its profit targets for the second time this year. For the full year, earnings per share are now expected to be between USD 10.10 and USD 10.30 before special items, an increase of around 25% on the previous year. In addition to the solid quarterly figures, a buy recommendation from Goldman Sachs also led to new highs. Analyst Robert Koort pointed out that Linde increased sales in all regions, which led to a surprising profit and continues to see the price at EUR 291.

The energy turnaround cannot get past hydrogen technology. dynaCERT has developed a visionary system that has significant upside when introduced to the mass market. Although the successes of the new management at hydrogen truck maker Nikola are evident, the share remains risky due to the turbulence surrounding the founder. In contrast, we see Linde as a clear long-term buy candidate.

NEL, dynaCERT, Volkswagen: Where hydrogen has not yet been written off

  • Hydrogen

Will hydrogen become a climate saver in homes? Or will it revolutionize the propulsion technology of ships and trucks? Even if hydrogen has lost some of its fantasy in recent months, the energy carrier is still on the agenda of many inventors and engineers. We introduce three companies that are - sometimes more and sometimes less - involved with hydrogen.

Nel ASA, Enapter, Plug Power, FuelCell Energy - It is time to go all out!

  • Hydrogen

Hydrogen is not only a climate-friendly means of propulsion for automobiles and heavy-duty transport. Large industries such as chemicals and steel can use hydrogen technology to reduce their consumption of natural gas. There are costs involved when converting to hydrogen, most of which are only feasible with political support. The German government's national hydrogen strategy fits in well here. But medium-sized industries, especially energy-intensive sectors, could also become much more environmentally friendly with hydrogen-based technologies. Which stocks are well-positioned here?

Enapter, NEL, Ballard Power - Hydrogen: This will happen!

  • Hydrogen

If you follow the political discussion in Germany regarding climate and green energy, the debate is almost exclusively about solar and wind power. Electric mobility is the order of the day. But soberly considered, there will and must be a coexistence of several approaches. Hydrogen solutions have received far too little attention. But this technology is urgently needed for the energy transition. The industry is still relatively young, but there is a very good chance that a huge market will emerge in which several companies will be able to operate successfully and profitably. Are these the winners?
