Varta, dynaCERT, Nordex - Strong development

  • Hydrogen
Photo credits:

Renewable energies are essential concerning the targeted climate neutrality. For the long-term success of the energy transition and climate protection, alternatives to fossil energy sources are being sought. The switch to the new sources of photovoltaics, wind, hydrogen or geothermal energy opens up new economic sectors with considerable potential. Many companies have recognized the signs of the times, already initiated the turnaround and are now facing a bright future.

About the author

When will the starting signal be given?

One of the problem children of climate protection is heavy goods traffic. Climate gas emissions from trucks and buses have been rising sharply for years and account for 25% of all carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles in the EU. Now the European Union has stepped in and passed the first laws. Truck manufacturers must reduce CO² emissions by at least 15% and by as much as 30% by 2030. Failure to comply could result in severe penalties for fleet operators. This situation is a tricky balancing act for truck owners because enormous costs are incurred in setting up a new, lower CO² fleet.

However, the solution to this problem has been developed by dynaCERT with over 16 years of research. With the Canadians' HydraGEN technology, vehicles with combustion engines can be inexpensively converted to reduce both CO² emissions and fuel consumption by up to 19%. Intelligent software has also been developed to record and analyze consumption. The fleet companies can convert the saved CO² into corresponding certificates and sell them.

Technically, according to the experienced management, the technology could already be applied to passenger cars at the current level. Nevertheless, at least for the near future, the focus is on the segments of trucks, diesel generators, construction machinery, ships, and railroad locomotives. In the first quarter, dynaCERT registered growing sales, still at a low level, in the commercial vehicle industry in North America. A roll-out serving the mass market is expected in the next two years.

The stock market also expects dynaCERT to enter the mass market. The existing, patented technology is also state of the art in terms of sustainability. However, larger, scalable orders should now be received to justify the stock market valuation. Currently, the Canadian Company is trading at CAD 0.35 on its home exchange in Toronto, marking a new low for the year. The Company's stock market value, which is also traded in Frankfurt, is currently the equivalent of around EUR 90 million.

Breakthrough at Varta

The chart of the battery manufacturer Varta behaved like from the chart-technical textbook in the past few days. After a rebound at the prominent resistance zone at EUR 136.75, a massive setback occurred the day before yesterday, which, however, could be compensated intraday. With yesterday's news, the price managed to break through the EUR 137 barrier on the second attempt and generated a strong buy signal. The next price target should be the closing of the price gap at EUR 155.

The reason for the substantial price increase was the news that Varta welcomed the Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer Porsche as a new customer for its high-performance battery V4Drive. Further details regarding the scope or duration of the order were not disclosed. There was also no confirmation or denial from Porsche.

News supports Nordex

Shareholders have had to absorb hard blows in recent weeks. The share price fell from just under EUR 30 to a low of EUR 16.90. A bottom should now form in the area around EUR 18. From a chart perspective, a breakout above the EUR 19.63 mark would brighten the picture. The large order from Finland yesterday provided positive signs and a plus of more than 1.5%. The Hamburg-based Company will supply 35 turbines with a total output of 199.5 megawatts for four onshore wind farms to a Finnish developer next year. With hub heights of 148 and 159 meters, the turbines are scheduled for completion by late fall 2022.

Overall, the mood among analysts is brightening when it comes to the Nordex stock. Société Générale sees the wind turbine manufacturer as a Buy candidate with a price target of EUR 27. Jefferies is also optimistic and assigns a price target of EUR 30.

NEL, First Hydrogen, Rock Tech Lithium: Why investors must rethink now

  • Hydrogen

For months, stocks related to innovative mobility concepts lived in the shadows. After the hype of last year and the first few months of this year, the former high-flyers seemed to have run out of steam. But the wind has changed. Investors' appetite for risk is high again. A few weeks ago, the market would have shrugged its shoulders at best, but now it is attracting buyers. For investors who think speculatively, this is excellent news!

Clean Logistics, Plug Power, BYD - Huge upheavals in the transport industry fuel share prices

  • Hydrogen

"Decarbonization" - this term could make it to "word of the year." That is because it describes what urgently needs to be implemented in all sectors to preserve the Earth's habitat: the switch from fossil, carbon-based energy sources to sustainably and climate-neutrally produced energy sources. The transport industry plays a significant role in global warming. In Germany alone, road freight transport is expected to increase by a further 19% by 2030. Innovative ideas and solutions that can be implemented quickly are therefore urgently needed. In doing so, manufacturers are relying on a variety of technologies.

Plug Power, Enapter, SFC Energy - The climate savior is hydrogen!

  • Hydrogen

The strong increase in energy prices is driving the inflation rate in Germany to a high level. With an increase of 4.1% compared to the same month of the previous year, inflation accelerated again in September. Already in July, the ECB thought that a cyclical high might have been reached. It has reached its highest level in almost 28 years, only in December 1993, it was once briefly above the 4% mark. These are historic times into which Western society is now moving; unfortunately, no one knows when the end will be. The efficient production of hydrogen and its industrial utilization would make our energy supply affordable and environmentally compatible in the long term. Unfortunately, the current technologies are still costly and not suitable for mass production. However, hydrogen remains a hot topic on the stock market. We take a look at some of the protagonists in the H2 thriller.
