The Biden win turned the mood surrounding the renewable energy market into that of excitement and optimism from what it has been under the Trump administration. It’s no secret that a Biden win will be dimmed a big win for renewables: it’s time for the renewable energy boom.
The market is already reflecting this inevitable reality, as renewable energy stocks are currently one of the hottest stocks in the market. And Biden has made no secret of his intention to lead the transition of the United States from reliance on fossil fuels to renewables.
Investors are currently moving their assets away from fossil-fuel producers to renewable energy companies, and hydrogen stocks are one of the hottest destinations for investors looking to invest in renewables.
The prospects of hydrogen-powered cars and trucks are becoming more attainable as a result of technological advancement in recent years. Hydrogen fuel cell technology has been used successfully in many other industries and the technology could be deployed to develop hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (HFCVs). HFCVs may very well be the immediate alternative to fossil fuel cars before the EV battery limitation is solved.
Moreover, renewable hydrogen, which can replace fossil fuel in sectors that are struggling to decarbonise, is seen as a way to meet goals to reduce emissions.
Check out these promising EV battery stocks.
The major companies powering this revolutionary push are Bloom Energy, Ballard Power System, Plug Power, Cummins, Air Products & Chemicals, and FuelCell Energy, and they are the best hydrogen stocks to invest in for the HFCV revolution.
However, these stocks are not cheap, FuelCell Energy is the only stock that is currently under $20. So if cheap penny stocks are your thing as a trader, these stocks might not be best for you. Not to worry, the stocks listed below are cheap and cost pennies, for now.
Note: Trading stocks listed in the OTC Markets is risky as the market is not well-regulated, check out the disadvantages of trading penny stocks.
If you are interested in trading hydrogen penny stocks, here are 7 cheap hydrogen stocks under $10 and $5 to consider:
