Volkswagen, Altech Advanced Materials, RWE - Use the dip in electrification companies for your portfolio

  • Technology
  • renewableenergies
  • Energy

The future is electric. With the growing number of electric vehicles, energy storage technologies are also gaining enormous importance. These technologies form the backbone of a reliable, environmentally friendly energy landscape - they store energy from renewable sources and ensure that electricity flows even when the sun and wind are taking a break. Such progress not only promises a smaller ecological footprint but also a new era of energy independence. We have selected three companies that are helping with electrification.

Ballard Power, Saturn Oil + Gas, and Siemens Energy - Three energy companies on course for growth. Who offers the greatest potential return?

  • Mining
  • Oil
  • renewableenergies
  • Energy

Fuel cells, oil and gas, grid technologies and onshore wind power - there are many opportunities for investors to invest in energy companies. But which segment offers significant return potential? Berkshire Hathaway is focusing on oil and gas companies such as Occidental Petroleum. A Canadian company in the same segment is Saturn Oil & Gas. The Company made it into the top 20 fastest-growing companies in Canada last year and pursues a transparent growth strategy focusing on value creation for its shareholders. Ballard Power Systems creates fuel cells, relies heavily on government support and has raised USD 94 million for the construction of its new fuel cell plant in Texas. Siemens Energy, in turn, released its financial figures for the first quarter of this year. Until now, the spectre of Siemens Gamesa has been haunting the ranks, but the latest results are surprising...

Attention: Uranium despite the energy transition! Does this fit together? Plug Power, Nel ASA, Kraken Energy and Renk Group in focus

  • Mining
  • Uranium
  • Energy
  • renewableenergies
  • nuclear

It feels like a paradox. The EU aims to be largely climate-neutral by 2050. The main focus is on mobility, heat and energy generation. As a core country of the EU, Germany is taking the political lead in the necessary measures. While France, Poland, Finland and the Czech Republic are actively expanding nuclear energy, this form of energy is virtually taboo in many other countries. Germany has been able to increase its renewable energy sources to over 50% with billions in subsidies at the expense of the taxpayer and the price of energy. Yet, Berlin still has to buy cheap electricity from abroad and also use coal and gas to stabilize the grid. It all sounds kind of crazy, but it gets really interesting when the wind isn't blowing and the sun is only to be found behind the clouds. Which shares should be considered in this mixed situation?

Energy sector on the upswing: Siemens Energy, Manuka Resources and Nordex Group focus on a sustainable future

  • Mining
  • Vanadium
  • renewableenergies
  • Energy

International collaborations are lucrative ventures for energy companies such as Siemens Energy. As a strong partner for Iraq, the Group supports the country in the secondary utilization of by-product gases for power generation that would otherwise be lost. Vanadium, a critical raw material for sustainable construction and electromobility, is needed. China and Russia possess the most deposits but are politically insecure. This is reason enough for the company Manuka Resources to explore a rich vanadium area off the coast of New Zealand. Thanks to an accelerated procedure for granting mining permits by the New Zealand government, operations could commence soon. Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex is also in the starting blocks: with an order from South Africa, the Hamburg-based company will deliver 57 turbines to the coastal region. Here are the details.

Kraken Energy, RWE, Plug Power - Is Germany reconsidering its nuclear phase-out?

  • Mining

  • Uranium

Calls for a U-turn on the nuclear energy issue are getting louder in Germany. Above all, the AfD, the CDU/CSU, and the FDP, as members of the traffic light government, are calling for a resumption of nuclear power generation. In Europe, Germany's energy policy has already caused considerable head-shaking. Nuclear power can shoulder the base load, does not produce CO2 emissions and is cheaper and less volatile than renewable energies. Many countries agree on one thing: we need to move away from fossil fuels. In the Czech Republic, plans are underway to build 4 new nuclear power plants, and in Poland, the Netherlands and Sweden, there is no longer interest in phasing out nuclear power. It will be interesting to see how Germany's struggle for energy develops.

Nel ASA, Klimat X Developments, Nordex - Climate Neutral: The Business Booster

  • Sustainability
  • renewableenergies
  • Energy

In a world that is increasingly scrutinizing the ecological footprint of business ventures, companies that actively integrate measures to achieve climate neutrality into their business processes are increasingly coming into focus. Such proactive companies can gain a significant competitive advantage in the current environment. It is not only end consumers who are increasingly paying attention to the climate neutrality of companies but also the companies themselves. Being climate-neutral enhances the value of one's brand, providing an additional selling point, and green companies receive bonus points in financing discussions. We take a look at three companies that are trying to make the world a greener place.

Nordex, Kraken Energy, Siemens Energy - Energy shares making a comeback

  • Mining
  • Uranium
  • Energy
  • renewableenergies

Whether wind, solar or hydrogen, in recent months, listed companies in the renewable energy sector have almost exclusively undergone a sharp correction. The expectations of market participants at the beginning of the decade for achieving climate goals were too high. Currently, there seems to be an end in sight, with the first fallen angels forming a solid foundation that could lead to a new upward wave. The nuclear energy sector has already started to pick up, with the uranium price reaching a new multi-year high. Further opportunities to participate in the upward trend lie dormant here, particularly in the second tier.

Prospera Energy, BP, Plug Power: Fossil or renewable energies - Who leads in the commodity market?

  • Mining
  • Oil
  • Energy
  • renewableenergies
  • Hydrogen

The US is currently holding back on the export of liquefied natural gas shipments, posing a challenging situation for economies like Germany that rely on energy imports. Investors are increasingly turning their attention to companies that are helping to drive forward the energy transition. To reach that goal, oil and gas companies like Prospera Energy, with their ambitious oil extraction plans, are gaining the attention of many investors. For those preferring dividend investments, BP is an unavoidable choice. The global company also mixes its energy production with renewable energy. Plug Power is a pioneer in this field, having recently commissioned another hydrogen plant in Tennessee, USA. However, the excitement about the innovation is dampened by an analyst rating.

Kraken Energy, RWE, Plug Power - What does the energy of the future look like?

  • Energy
  • renewableenergies
  • Hydrogen

In a world that is increasingly facing the challenges of climate change and limited resources, the question of future energy supply is coming more and more into focus. While fossil fuels are slowly but surely losing their place as the primary energy source, alternative technologies are in the spotlight. Nuclear power, hydrogen and renewable energies such as solar and wind are key players in the quest for a sustainable energy future. The global landscape reflects an increased expansion of nuclear power plants and renewable energies. Hydrogen could benefit from the latter. We take a look at one company from each sector.

Top news: Plug Power, TUI, Prospera Energy

Should one buy Plug Power shares anti-cyclically now? Following the slump in the share price and the announced capital increase, more and more analysts are switching towards the bearish camp regarding the hydrogen pioneer. Has the bottom been reached? Prospera Energy shares have upside potential. The Canadian oil producer has met its targets for 2023, production is expected to increase significantly again in 2024, and the oil price is on the rise again. The share is, therefore, ripe for a turnaround. The TUI share has achieved this in the last few months of 2023. The share is currently consolidating. TUI is poised for a positive travel season in 2024 and aims to become more environmentally friendly.
