Ballard Power Systems is a leading provider of clean energy fuel cell solutions. Founded in 1979, the company has a long history of innovation and technological leadership in hydrogen-based fuel cells. Ballard’s products are used by hundreds of customers worldwide for applications ranging from motive power vehicles to stationary power systems.
The company offers a range of fuel cell products designed for commercial and industrial applications, as well as for transportation.
Ballard Power Systems has an impressive price history. The highest the company’s stock ever hit was in March 2000 when the share price rose to $129 per share. Since then, it has dropped considerably, hitting a low of $0.60 in December 2012.
However, with its strong presence in fuel cells and related technology, Ballard Power Systems has managed to remain stable despite tremendous volatility in the markets. Investors who bought Ballard Power Systems’ stock at its lowest price of $0.60 have seen a significant increase in value over the years as the share price has since grown to $4.55 per share as of May 2023.
With its technology used in many applications including heavy-duty motive, stationary power generation as well as portable power for use cases like backup power and aviation, Ballard is well-positioned to benefit from the growth of the fuel cell industry.
Traders can also consider other competitors in this space such as Plug Power (PLUG), which specializes in hydrogen fuel cells for material handling and other niche markets like food delivery services and hospitals. Additionally, FuelCell Energy (FCEL) produces stationary fuel cells for generating electricity from natural gas, biogas, and other sources.
