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, Pure Extraction, Volkswagen VZ: Where one piece of news can change everything

  • Hydrogen

Sustainability is one of those things - The closer you look, the more complex the situation becomes. Just recently, a study by the non-governmental organization ICCT showed that even hydrogen vehicles fueled with green hydrogen could have sustainability flaws. The reason: the tanks are sometimes made of carbon fibers. Their production can generate about as many greenhouse gases as the production of batteries for e-cars. We look at three stocks related to hydrogen and mobility and explain what opportunities investors can associate with them.

SFC Energy, Enapter, Everfuel - The hydrogen of the future

  • Hydrogen

Green hydrogen is the energy source of the future. Without it, there will be no climate change. The German government has also recognized this and is since focusing on a national hydrogen strategy. Green hydrogen is produced by the electrolysis of water, using only electricity from renewable sources. Only green hydrogen is truly climate-friendly, as it is made without fossil fuels. Currently, the correction in the respective shares offers favorable entry opportunities. Place your bets on the market leaders.
