The COVID pandemic started a massive, trillion-dollar wave of green investments.
This is why we at the Financial Star are talking so much about clean technology. Food, infrastructure, energy… All of these sectors will be transformed into the “new normal” post-Covid.
And the transition away from fossil fuels toward renewable energy sources will transform the planet… and create immense investment opportunities.
But there’s a problem.
See, renewable energy sources like solar or wind are cyclical. Sun shines only during the day, and winds have their own rhythms.
So whereas a power plant powered by coal or gas can work 24/7, solar installations or wind turbines can’t.
But the demand for energy doesn’t follow the day-night cycle. Or the wind cycles. We need energy all the time.
Battery storage is one solution. If you produce solar energy during the day and store it in a battery, it’s available 24/7.
But batteries are expensive… And even if their price goes down by two-thirds, it will still be impossible to make them part of a completely clean energy system.
For clean energy to completely replace coal, gas, and other “dirty” sources, it needs a better solution…
And we have one. This technology will solve two massive problems: storing energy in a way that’s better and cheaper than what lithium-ion batteries offer… and making the global transportation industry clean.
Let me explain…
Hydrogen Will Transform the World’s Transportation Industry
Here at the Financial Star, we’re constantly looking for the next big thing in the investment world… because we want to get there before everybody else does — and profit when the rest of the market catches up.
So here’s what we’re seeing in the market today…
While everybody is following electric vehicle manufacturers and metals like lithium… we’re looking in a different direction.
Make no mistake, though. Lithium is important. It’s called “the new gas” for a reason. Over the next 5–10 years, it will power a significant share of the global car fleet. By 2030, half of the new car sales in the US could be electric, according to Volkswagen.
So lithium is very important.
But lithium isn’t likely to make a change in some of the most polluting industries… the ones that require enormously powerful engines… like this one, which is the biggest diesel engine in the world.
This engine is used in cargo ships.
And the only way to replace monsters like this is by using hydrogen fuel cells.
Why? Because only hydrogen can provide high power output for a long time—and take little time to recharge. Any other technology isn’t quite on par with it.
So to recap… Hydrogen fuel cells can solve two massive problems facing the world.
First, they can supply the world’s transportation industry with a reliable source of clean power. Form taxis to cargo ships the size of a village, hydrogen can move people and goods.
Second, hydrogen fuel cells can help lithium-ion batteries in the global clean energy transition. They will work alongside solar and wind generators to store energy and release it into the grid when needed.
And money is pouring into this sector… both governments and investors are looking out for opportunities in the green energy and transportation space.
The European Union will spend $570 billion on renewable hydrogen projects.
And companies like Plug Power (PLUG) have skyrocketed in the course of just one year.
PLUG is trading at levels almost nine times higher than a year ago. And this is despite the recent correction…
This is just the beginning for this sector, however. Clean energy and transportation will take over the world in the following years.
And be sure that we will keep you informed about all the most recent developments in this area… to make sure you are ahead of the crowd when it comes to making the most important investment decisions of your life.
