Clean Power Capital Corp: Fueling the Next Chapter of the EV Boom in 2021

By Jason Eckerman



The Future is Here

Tesla’s meteoric rise to the S&P 500 was the story of the year for 2020, but we could be looking at the next chapter of the EV surge in 2021.

With their long-awaited Battery Day putting everyone’s attention on the power source, it shined a major light on the problem we’ve seen growing in this booming industry.

For many people, EV batteries take too long to charge for them to truly fit their needs.

At the top of that list is freight trucks, which don’t have the luxury of waiting an hour or more at a charging station while carrying precious cargo hundreds of miles per day.

And with many major companies forced to reduce carbon emissions while still needing to get shipments delivered fast, more and more are looking toward another solution.

That’s great news for companies working on hydrogen fuel cell technology like Clean Power Capital Corp.

In fact, there’s become so much buzz around hydrogen that even Big Oil companies like BP and Royal Dutch Shell are ramping up their investments in the new fuel source.

And now, countless major automakers are getting into the hydrogen fuel cell EV game as well.

Daimler Chrysler, Mercedes, and Volvo all announced they’ll be unveiling hydrogen-powered vehicles in the near future.

But the demand for this tech in larger, long-haul trucks is growing greater by the day.

That’s why Toyota announced they plan to show off their upcoming 18-wheeler powered by hydrogen fuel cells in the first half of this year.

And major names like UPS, FedEx, and even the U.S. Postal Service are partnering up to get these vehicles out on the road.

Even with some of the biggest names in the auto industry onboard, it may sound like futuristic tech still years down the line to some.

But the truth is this technology is already up and running.

California-based Total Transportation Services has already had hydrogen-powered freight trucks on the road for years.

And to get this revolutionary fuel cell technology running nationwide, they’ll need the fueling stations to keep these trucks running.

Which is exactly what PowerTap has been working on with their technology for years.

Back in 2000, the U.S. Department of Energy backed a new project supported by Renault, Hess Oil, and the original developers, Nuvera.

All told, investors put in an estimated $50 million developing the technology.

But for years, this sat as a buried asset while the buzz around hydrogen began to build.

Until now.

After PowerTap discovered this groundbreaking technology, they acquired the rights and got to work immediately.

In short, their technology can be placed easily at the gas stations you already have throughout cities all across America…

And it produces the hydrogen on-site, ready to be pumped into the fuel cells of these next-gen trucks.

The best part?

Because they don’t have to buy new real estate for dispensing stations… or pay expensive transportation costs to haul the hydrogen there to dispense it…

They’re able to sell the hydrogen far cheaper than their competitors.

There are already 14 gas stations that have installed the PowerTap technology for use – helping powering vehicles in California, Texas, Virginia, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Oregon

But this technology is about to get an upgrade, and PowerTap plans to begin their expansion across the country later this year.


Miles Ahead of the Pack


Clean Power Capital’s timing could not have been better, as everyone from the largest hedge funds to Big Tech have been all about ESG, or sustainable investing, in the past year.

If they were to try to acquire the PowerTap technology again today, the price tag would be so high, it would’ve been impossible for them to do it.

And their breakthrough technology offers them a huge advantage over their competitors.

While others estimated it could cost as much as $15-16 million to build each fueling station, PowerTap could get it done at just a sliver of that at $4-5 million.

That could give them the ability to build stations far faster than the competition, and that’s after already having a head start at 14 existing stations using their PowerTap technology.

Toyota and other major companies plan to build more of these hydrogen fueling stations, but many aren’t expected to be completed until 2023.

Clean Power Capital, through PowerTap, on the other hand, expects to have at least 5 to 10 fueling stations up and running later this year.

In fact, they recently announced they’ve signed an agreement with the Andretti Group to install several PowerTap’s fueling stations by the end of 2021.

With the Andretti Group’s 39 fueling stations in the state of California alone and over 100 facilities throughout the United States…

This deal could signal the start of the hydrogen-powered push the industry has been waiting for.

And in the next 3 to 5 years, Clean Power Capital is projecting they could have 500 PowerTap stations or more pumping hydrogen into these next-gen vehicles around the nation.

And this could all become much easier to get the job done with California’s latest news.

In their proposed 2021 budget, California’s governor proposed earmarking a massive $1.5 billion for the companies building charging and hydrogen fueling stations.

If PowerTap receives even a small portion of that, that could mean Americans could start seeing these fueling stations popping up before they know it.

Plus, they’re expecting to be able to drive revenue even before EV freight trucks become the norm.

That’s because California will also be offering carbon credits through their Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) Credit program in efforts to reduce greenhouse gases.

These carbon credits can even be granted to companies producing hydrogen before dispensing any hydrogen from these refueling stations.

And if they receive these credits as they expect to after installing these stations, they can sell these to other companies on an ongoing basis on the emission trading markets.

These are in high demand for companies like Big Oil, who need to buy these credits to offset all the carbon emissions and reach their targets to avoid major issues.

With the size of their stations and the amount of hydrogen they could produce, conservative estimates say PowerTap could earn$1.3 million per year in carbon credits.

And should they achieve their initial launch of 500 stations in the state, their network has the potential to generate up to $1 billion in revenue from these credits each year, before taking into account any revenue sharing arrangements.

This has already been a massive revenue driver for major companies like Tesla, which received over $1.5 billion in carbon credits in 2020.

And soon, PowerTap could grab a portion of this market as well.

We’re on the cutting edge of what could become the greatest change in transportation since the internal combustion engine.

And with the amount of help green companies are getting while riding an EV wave that’s been building for years, it’s no wonder several are already seeing massive gains.

Plug Power, another company building hydrogen fuel cell technology, soared for rare, extraordinary 1,510% gains over the last year.

Now, PowerTap hopes to share in that success.

They’ve engaged the top engineers in the business with expertise in hydrogen. And they have a manufacturer set to make these units in just the coming months.

Starting in California, they expect to move up the coast and take over the Pacific Northwest before making their move west and covering the entire United States.

After the incredible success EV companies like Tesla and Plug Power have enjoyed over the last year, this is an exciting time in what could be a massive transformation in how we drive.

And for PowerTap, this inflection point offers investors an opportunity to get in at the ground floor before more developments are expected later this year.
