ValueTheMarkets.com News Commentary:With huge investment pouring in from governments and companies around the world, hydrogen is set to play a huge role in the future of energy. As such, emerging green hydrogen technologies represent a major opportunity for investors. This article discusses the topic with reference to innovators like Ballard Power Systems(NASDAQ: BLDP), Linde PLC(NYSE: LIN), Bloom Energy Corp(NYSE: BE) and Jericho Energy Ventures(TSXV: JEV)(OTC: JROOF).
According to the International Energy Agency, the gas is light, storable, energy-dense, and produces no direct emissions of pollutants or greenhouse gases. It's properties like these which have convinced several companies to put their efforts behind the energy source. Ballard Power Systems is handing the power of hydrogen generation to a wide range of transit businesses with its solutions. Meanwhile, Linde PLC is a major generator of hydrogen and has used its expertise to develop a variety of new applications. Finally, Bloom Energy is creating new power generation products with a twist.
Jericho Energy Ventures(TSXV: JEV)(OTC: JROOF) is right at the cutting edge of hydrogen technology. Unlike many hydrogen players, this small cap is largely concerned with supplying green hydrogen solutions, rather than generation. These include its cutting-edge, zero-emission DCC™ hydrogen-fueled steam boiler, which targets the underserved industrial and commercial markets. As a rare solution, it offers businesses a precious opportunity to decarbonize their operations by binning traditional boilers for a clean alternative. This new technology is already attracting customers too. Just this week, it was announced that a top US University will deploy a DCC™ boiler within its district heat system. JEV CEO, Brian Williamson, said the deal demonstrated growing demand for decarbonizing solutions in the industry. Proof of concept with new customers like this could lead to some major wins for the company! This potential might be why some analysts are already branding this stock a BUY.
Ballard Power Systems(NASDAQ: BLDP) are experts in fuel cell technology with a particular focus on making transit clean and green. The company makes a variety of heavy-duty modules for buses, trucks, trains and ships. This sees the company receive orders for a wide variety of applications, with a recent win resulting in the business agreeing to supply 60 hydrogen fuel cells for use in zero-emissions mining trucks. The company's innovation is continual too, with a current major focus on creating a product which is as cost-effective as possible. An announcement from June confirmed that the business intends to scale production of its next generation, proprietary graphite bipolar plates. This process, which will significantly reduce plate materials while enabling high-power density stacks, is expected to result in cost savings of up to 70%. This innovative approach could make the company's products more affordable and thus more attractive to customers.
European chemicals giant Linde PLC(NYSE: LIN) is another company taking an innovative and leading approach to the hydrogen opportunity. It's one of the world's largest producers of industrial gases, so getting in on the hydrogen game makes sense. Generating clean hydrogen is one of this business's key projects, with plans to bring its Niagara Falls hydrogen production plant online in 2025. This plant will produce clean hydrogen through electrolysis, with the chemical reaction being powered by renewable hydroelectricity. The company has achieved some world firsts beyond production too, with this year seeing the announcement of the first-ever hydrogen ferry. The MF Hydra, which transports both cars and passengers in Norway, started commercial operations in March with a fuel containment system built, developed and installed by the chemicals giant.
Bloom Energy Corp(NYSE: BE) is another expert in fuel cell technology. This company has constructed the Bloom Energy Server, which it says allows for more efficient clean hydrogen generation through the use of its solid oxide technology. This focus on efficiency has seen several impressive feats from the company, including the unveiling of the world's largest solid oxide electrolyzer installation at NASA's Ames Research Center, which began generating hydrogen in May of this year. The company's technology has wide-ranging applications too. These include recent deployment in the marine market, with the company having announced in March that its fuel cell technology increased the electrical efficiency on a working luxury cruise ship, both in port and at sea. The business will be hoping that this attempt to demonstrate the viability of its fuel cell technology for a new market, bringing new customers through the door.
There are clearly many exciting innovations to come from the rapidly growing hydrogen energy space. Major players like Ballard Power Systems, Linde and Bloom Energy are busy perfecting the way in which hydrogen energy is generated and stored, thus rapidly increasing the availability of green hydrogen. Meanwhile, businesses like Jericho seek to develop new hydrogen technologies to solve real-world problems and help customers to reduce emissions with this increasing supply of clean hydrogen.
