The market is seeing red. Of course, in the short term, the outbreak of a new Coronavirus variant is determining events on the markets. In addition to stocks, cryptocurrencies are falling like stones, and even the safe haven gold is sliding into the red after initial gains. In the long term, values from the hydrogen sector, especially after the strong correction of the past months, offer enormous potential due to the tighter climate targets and are gradually becoming more attractive again at current levels.

    Ready for the mass market

    One of the stocks that has been in correction mode not just since the South African Corona variant broke out is dynaCERT. Since the peak in February 2020 at EUR 0.93, the share price has only known the downward direction, apart from a few significant countermovements. At EUR 0.17, the price is only minimally above its low for the year. The reasons for this are clear. The market is waiting for the roll-out of Carbon Emission Reduction Technology, which has been developed and patented worldwide for 17 years. It is aimed at reducing emissions and improving fuel efficiency.

    The resulting HydraGEN product is used in internal combustion engines, currently focusing on heavy vehicles. Here, the electrolysis unit produces water and oxygen, optimizing fuel combustion, resulting in both a reduction in fuel consumption and emissions of up to 19%. HydraGEN is compatible with many types and sizes of diesel engines used in passenger cars, refrigerated trucks, off-road construction, power generation, mining and forestry equipment, ships and railroad locomotives.

    In addition, HydraLytica, intelligent software that records and analyzes consumption, has been developed. The fleet companies can convert the CO2 saved into corresponding certificates and sell them. In this context, the potential for the next few years is virtually inexhaustible due to the CO2 reduction targets set at around 100 million vehicles. As a result, sales have been rolled out globally to a total of 38 countries.

    At least a small start was the implementation of the technology by Sofina Foods, one of Canada's leading manufacturers of primary and processed protein products for retail and foodservice and international markets. They are expanding their dynaCERT system from four to now twenty units.

    Significantly bounced back

    The stock market star of 2020, the Norwegian hydrogen specialist Nel ASA, celebrated a comeback in recent weeks. After the year's lows at EUR 1.20, the share rose to EUR 2.06 but stuck here several times at the striking resistance of the July high. Since then, the Norwegian shares have been in reverse gear and are in a corridor between EUR 1.60 and EUR 1.80. A slide would mean even more pressure on the share.

    An order for an electrolyzer system to accelerate fossil-free steel production recently came in from Sweden. The order, received by the subsidiary Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser AS, covers an alkaline water electrolyzer with a capacity of 20 MW. The order, worth around EUR 11 million, was placed by Ovako, a producer of structural steel, which intends to install the electrolyzer at the company's plant in Hofors, Sweden. For Nel Asa CEO Jon André Løkke, the order is a confirmation of the importance of green hydrogen: "There is enormous potential for reducing CO2 emissions from steel heating processes by using green hydrogen. There are numerous similar sites with equally great potential for decarbonization throughout Europe and the rest of the world."

    Correction after highs

    Even the shares of Chinese electric carmaker BYD, which have been running like clockwork for months, were unable to escape the South African Corona variant, losing more than 5% in the course of trading. In the process, the value closed an upward gap torn in the past week at EUR 34.20. The chart already finds support in the area around EUR 34.00. The growth prospects continue to be dazzling, and due to a positive overall market, BYD should also start heading north again.

    On the news level, a major order for the delivery of electric buses to Barcelona could be published. In this context, 25 electric buses of the latest generation are to be put into operation in the Catalan capital between 2022 and 2024 by the transport company Transportes Metropolitanos de Barcelona SA.

    Currently, a new Corona variant is weighing on the markets in the short term. In the long term, however, renewable energy stocks should perform due to the new climate targets. There is potential for dynaCERT in the event of a successful roll-out, and BYD should resume its upward path if the markets are positive.

    Nel ASA and Varta continue to decline: dynaCERT convinces analysts during an on-site visit

    • Hydrogen
    • GreenTech
    • Batteries
    • renewableenergies

    Being active in a market of the future is no guarantee for success. Shareholders of Varta had to painfully realize this in recent months. The German battery group has indeed reached an agreement with banks on restructuring. However, there can be no talk of a liberating blow. According to analysts, the share could continue to slide. Experts are also somewhat cautious about Nel ASA. The hydrogen specialist's chart does not look rosy either. In contrast, dynaCERT could be due for a revaluation in the current year. Experts believe the Greentech company has set the course for a commercial breakthrough in 2023.

    Subsidies beckon, shareholders profit: Volkswagen, NEL, First Hydrogen

    • Hydrogen
    • GreenTech
    • subsidies

    Money from the state comes in handy for many companies. This is especially true when the challenges are great, and the capital requirements are immense. For large industrial companies, subsidies have always been part of the package. Just recently, Volkswagen, for example, picked up money in South Carolina. We explain in which industries there is also something "to be had" for shareholders.

    First Hydrogen, Volkswagen, Daimler Truck - The unstoppable energy transition, who is winning the race?

    • Hydrogen
    • fuelcell
    • Investments

    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.
