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.

    Full interview


    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.

    Are E-cars facing the end? Mercedes-Benz, dynaCERT, NEL

    • Hydrogen
    • greenhydrogen
    • Electromobility

    What constitutes mobility is changing. There are also many mobility terms. It is increasingly difficult for automakers to position themselves. Except for BMW, all major manufacturers are now focusing exclusively on battery-powered e-cars. The trend is even so intact for decision-makers at major corporate headquarters that type designations introduced for e-cars are facing extinction. But not all automakers are convinced that e-cars are the way to go.

    Hydrogen shares: New favourites First Hydrogen and PNE instead of Plug Power and ITM Power?

    • Hydrogen
    • greenhydrogen
    • renewableenergies

    Hydrogen stocks have electrified investors' imaginations for years. But 2022 pure plays like Plug Power, Nel and ITM Power have disappointed. Not just in terms of share price performance but operationally as well. In contrast, newcomer First Hydrogen was one of the high flyers. The share price shot up by more than 100%, and the hydrogen commercial vehicles passed the tests. The Canadians want to continue to step on the gas in the current year. The share should benefit from this again; at CAD 200 million, it does not appear expensive. Now the German PNE is also entering the billion-dollar market. Following the end of takeover speculation, new impetus from green hydrogen is welcome. ITM Power sends a sign of life with an order from Linde.

    Hydrogen vision or greenwashing? Amazon, First Hydrogen, Plug Power

    Nowadays, various sustainability projects are under criticism, for example, when companies invest in forests to offset their CO2 emissions. Even the EU Commission has been accused of greenwashing following its decision to classify natural gas as sustainable. The critical discourse that has now been initiated could put many companies under scrutiny. We explain where sustainability is just PR and where the hydrogen vision can become a reality.
