Freyr Battery, Auxico Resources, Plug Power - Rare earth battery boom in e-Mobility

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • fuelcell
  • Electromobility

One of Norway's largest financial services companies is increasing its equity stake in Plug Power, the US hydrogen fuel cell company. The reason: Nikola Motors has selected the Company to upgrade its new e-mobility fleet with clean fuel cells. Freyr Battery also has similar ambitions. Here, Impact Clean Power Technology, the Polish manufacturer of battery systems for heavy-duty vehicles, has signed an agreement with Freyr to purchase clean batteries. Both big deals have one thing in common: demand for rare earths and valuable metals to make green technologies a reality. That is where Auxico Resources, a mineral exploration company focused on Africa, comes in.

First Hydrogen Corp., Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz Group - Hydrogen or electric drive, who will win the race in Automotive?

  • Hydrogen
  • fuelcell
  • Electromobility

Europe is gearing up for a zero-emission sweeping blow. Volkswagen and the Mercedes-Benz Group, two globally producing automotive groups, are launching the electric initiative to say goodbye to the combustion engine quickly. The Canadian company First Hydrogen Corp., on the other hand, is benefiting from its own agility and, together with its strong cooperation partners, is already in the test phase for hydrogen-powered vans on British roads. Its USP is the 360-degree solution for fleet operators. Hydrogen is ahead of battery-powered electric vehicles in terms of range - who will win the race for CO2-free powertrains in Europe?

  • fuelcell
  • Technology

Those in the import-export business usually know how to cut a deal in business terms. Sometimes entrepreneurs in this industry are also a bit shady - at least, that is the image attached to them. Now Norway wants to get into the import-export business in a big way. In the next three minutes, we explain what is at stake, why the deal is important for the hydrogen sector and how investors can profit from it.

FuelCell Energy, Almonty Industries, SFC Energy - Fatal effects

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • Electromobility
  • Energy
  • fuelcell

Even now, commodity prices, which have risen exorbitantly in recent years, are correcting due to fears of a prolonged recession. In the long term, the super-cycles in critical raw materials needed for the energy transition and innovative technologies will likely continue. That is because there is already a threat of supply bottlenecks for the required industrial metals. For investors, this scenario offers a unique opportunity.

E-car boom in Germany: BYD, Plug Power and dynaCERT are profiteers of the energy transition

  • Hydrogen
  • fuelcell
  • Investments

The trend toward e-cars continues. In November 2022, 260,512 passenger cars were newly registered in Germany (source: kba.de). That represents an increase of 31% compared to the previous year. New registrations of electric passenger cars (BEV) increased disproportionately by 44% to 57,980 units. Significantly, Tesla's Model 3 was the most-registered car in the mid-size segment, while the Porsche Taycan was the most-registered car in the luxury segment - across all drive types. The trend toward electromobility should continue in the coming year. That is also when BYD plans to shake up the market in Europe. As a result, the excitement for shareholders is rising. The same applies to Plug Power and dynaCERT. Both are facing milestones in 2023 that should catapult share prices to new heights.

Plug Power, dynaCERT, Nel ASA - The tension rises

  • Hydrogen
  • fuelcell

Hydrogen is a central building block for the energy transition and is considered the key to the successful decarbonization of the economy and the transport sector. Despite policy support programs for hydrogen strategies worldwide and the positive outlook for the future, companies listed on the stock exchange are still stuck in the correction. The final breakthrough could still take decades. On the other hand, bridging technologies benefit from the protracted implementation and can be used immediately in a wide range of industries.

Daimler Truck, First Hydrogen, Plug Power - Transportation industry in upheaval: Which shares will profit?

  • Hydrogen
  • fuelcell
  • Electromobility

In the EU, a quarter of all CO2 emissions are caused by road traffic. Here, the transport industry, with its diesel engines, plays a major role. If the ambitious climate targets are to be achieved by 2030, the industry will have to undergo a major transformation. Road freight transport alone is expected to reduce emissions by 26% by the end of the decade. For a long time, electromobility was seen as the solution, but it is becoming increasingly clear that hydrogen will also be an option. It always depends on the use case, and at the same time, the infrastructure must be in place for the technology in question. So today, we look at three companies that could benefit from fleet modernization.

500 hp, a speed beyond 200 km/h, a range of 1,000 kilometers - and still only water vapor comes out of the exhaust! The dreams of environmentally conscious car enthusiasts could soon come true. In the fall, French manufacturer Hopium plans to unveil its "Machina" model. Such lighthouse projects are currently driving the entire industry. We take a closer look at the three stocks, NEL, dynaCERT and Plug Power and tap into their prospects. Let's go!

BYD, First Hydrogen, Amazon - Electric vehicles on the brink of extinction?

  • Hydrogen
  • fuelcell
  • Electromobility

Alongside industry leader Tesla, Chinese carmakers, in particular, have been early adopters of e-cars. Since the end of the internal combustion engine was decided, there has been a battle for the one emission-free drive. For a long time, electromobility seemed to be winning the race, but charging times are still too long and ranges are limited. These are important factors, especially in the logistics sector. Now the first series production of hydrogen cars is starting in China. Changan Automobile, founded in 1862, claims a range of 700km for its hydrogen cars with a refueling time of a few seconds. Is this the beginning of the end for electric vehicles?
