Hydrogen boom drives index to all-time high! – columns

Yesterday, the French car manufacturer Renault announced a cooperation with the American Plug Power for the development of hydrogen-powered light commercial vehicles. Together with Linde, Daimler is advancing fueling technology for hydrogen-powered trucks. With the index certificate on the Global Hydrogen Index II investors can participate in the global hydrogen boom.

Hydrogen stocks showed an above-average development in the recent past. Research into possible uses for fuel cells is being carried out around the world. Trucks and buses are already being tested in many places. According to a study by McKinsey from 2017, around 30 percent of trucks in the heavy-duty and long-haul segment could be powered by (green) hydrogen by 2050. The federal government presented its hydrogen strategy last summer and is making seven billion euros available for research and promotion of hydrogen technology. The first projects have already been initiated. “Green hydrogen is tomorrow’s oil,” said Federal Research Minister Anja Karliczek. Green hydrogen could play an important part in achieving climate goals. The considerations have long since gone beyond road traffic. The fuel cell could be used in ships and trains in the long term as well as in industry. Above all, energy-intensive corporations such as the steel sector are looking for more environmentally friendly energy suppliers, and there is great hope for hydrogen and fuel cell technology. A study for the EU considers more than 5.4 million jobs and more than 800 billion euros in sales in a European hydrogen industry to be possible by 2050. The technology is relatively simple. The crux of the matter is primarily to generate sufficient energy for electrolysis from renewable energies.
