Everfuel’s ambition is to make green hydrogen for zero emission mobility commercially available across Europe. The company is engaging with partners, customers and authorities across the entire value chain from production to distribution and fuelling when executing its long-term strategy for value creation as a leading European green hydrogen fuel company.
The roll-out of the Scandinavian hydrogen (H2) fuelling network is a key strategic priority for Everfuel. The start-up in Norway, recent opening of new sites in Copenhagen and preparations for the initial stations in Sweden are milestones achieved to date in 2021. The new H2 stations in operations are expected to positively impact revenue starting in the fourth quarter. Developing hydrogen production capacity is another key priority, reflected in construction start on the HySynergy Phase I electrolyser in Fredericia, progress on planning for the Phase II expansion and industrial partnerships.
The initiatives are aimed at developing Everfuel’s position as a leading European provider of safe, stable and cost-efficient green hydrogen to end-users through competitive all-inclusive hydrogen supply- and fuelling solutions targeting large bus-, truck- and taxi-fleets supported by data-driven optimisation. All stations are, or will soon be, accessible for customers using the Everfuel App. The app and the company’s hydrogen distribution trailers and related assets will be connected to the company’s proprietary Helios big data system aimed at driving efficiency and competitiveness across the hydrogen value chain.
“With COP26 fresh in mind, there is no doubt that we are moving towards a step-change in production of renewable energy and transition to decarbonisation of transportation world-wide. We are starting to see political acknowledgement of the many possibilities of green hydrogen and in PtX of as an important part of the solution to the climate changes we are facing. We and the entire hydrogen industry need to develop the market in close cooperation with technology providers and end-users and with support of the authorities. As such, we are pleased that our HySynergy Phase II project has progressed in the EU’s IPCEI funding plan, a confirmation of European interest in making green hydrogen commercially available,” said Jacob Krogsgaard, the founder and CEO of Everfuel.
“We are also excited to see an increasing number of vehicles transitioning to zero-emission hydrogen. Fleets of hydrogen taxies are rolling out in the largest cities in Denmark, contributing to cleaner air and enabling taxi companies to meet rising customer demand for green mobility,” Krogsgaard added.
Everfuel had total revenue, representing sale of hydrogen and other operating revenue, of EUR 149 thousand in the third quarter of 2021. Direct revenue from hydrogen remained impacted by Covid-19 curbing traffic combined reduced capacity in Copenhagen due to opening the new high-capacity station was postponed until in the fourth quarter. Other operating revenue is primarily driven by one-off items. EBITDA was negative EUR 1.8 million, reflecting continued ramp-up of activity and organisation during the period.
The financial results reflect that the company is still in the initial stages of commercializing the green hydrogen value chain in its target markets.
Total assets at 30 September 2021 amounted to EUR 84 million, compared to EUR 27.1 million at 31 December 2020, of which cash holdings were EUR 69.5 million (EUR 23.4 million). Total equity amounted to EUR 80.4 million (EUR 25.7 million). Changes from year-end 2020 predominantly reflected net proceeds of NOK 600/EUR 58.5 million from the private placement in January 2021 and investments made through the period.
