“The hydrogen economy has gained substantial momentum over the past 24 months and Ballard is a central figure in this megatrend that has increasingly garnered major media and Wall Street attention. Ballard primarily serves the motive sectors spanning the bus, truck, rail, marine and passenger car markets,” said Shawn Severson, head of Sustainable Investing and BioEconomy Research at Water Tower Research.
“There are a variety of factors driving Ballard and the broader hydrogen economy including government regulations and policies, commercial scale deployments, the Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cell value proposition for motive applications, the lower cost of renewables and perhaps most importantly, an increasingly compelling total cost of ownership.”
Severson noted that Ballard, supplier of fuel-cell power systems, has been successful at developing partnerships with industry leaders including Kenworth, Van Hool, ABB Marine & Ports, MAHLE, Siemens and Weichai Power. “Ballard is rapidly moving from smaller deployments to larger scale commercial applications with over 1,000 transit buses, 2,200+ trucks and four trains in operation, while five ships are in the development phase.”
He said the heavy-duty mobility market represents a “substantial opportunity” for Ballard, with the total addressable market pegged in excess of $130 billion.
Severson said Water Tower Research is “excited” to be hosting a talk with MacEwen and Ballard focused on the Hydrogen economy. “The decade ahead should bode well for the transition of heavy-duty mobility from demonstration programs to full commercial deployment, and Ballard appears firmly positioned in the middle of that megatrend,” noted Severson.
