Green Investors Club April Wrap Up

As we approach the halfway point for 2022, Liberty Energy Capital and its partners are turning success into a habit following a series of deals, capital raises, and opportunities for potential technology partners.

In the coming weeks, you can expect to see us announce some new and exciting ventures.

We are passionate about helping businesses realise their full potential and connecting key players to drive impact at scale, so reach out if you have an idea or want to join us in the renewable energy revolution.

Look below for an update on all the exciting moves our partners are making in the clean hydrogen space.

Poseidon Marine H2 is launching their ‘Series A’ capital raise

After signing a world-class technology partner, Poseidon Marine H2 is launching a capital raise in the next 24 hours, via the online trading platform VCEX. The raise will fund the initial stages of building a hydrogen-powered boat by the third quarter of 2023.

Overall, the company believes they are constructing a better boat that just happens to be powered by hydrogen.
Their number one goal is to ensure the pleasure craft they are developing has an equivalent operational range, requires less maintenance and is cheaper to run than traditional fuel sources like diesel.

Investment highlights:

  • Opportunity to decarbonise a recreational boating market projected to grow from US$16.4b in 2021 to US$23.6b by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.2%.
  • A hydrogen-fuelled boat is expected to be in the water in the next 18 months, making it one of the first in the world.
  • The approach allows for a new top to be seamlessly installed onto a repurposed hull powered by green hydrogen, meaning uptake will be quick as the assets already exist.
  • Agreement with ‘Dynamic Efficiency’, whose engineering team has extensive experience including hazardous environment equipment design and a global network of relationships.

Aviation H2 launches their ‘Series B’ capital raise

After completing its feasibility study and signing a strategic partnership with FalconAir, Aviation H2 has launched a capital raise via the online platform VCEX to fund the construction of its first modification prototype.

The company is seeking to raise A$500k and with limited shares available you will not want to miss out on this rare opportunity.

Investment highlights:

  • The feasibility study is complete, which provides a clear pathway to building Australia’s first hydrogen-powered plane.
  • A strategic partnership with FalconAir gives Aviation H2 access to their Bankstown hangar, facilities and operating licences so they can begin building the aircraft.
  • FalconAir will help Aviation H2 acquire test engines and aircraft that will be used to deliver the project.
  • The approach will modify existing aircraft so they are powered by green hydrogen, meaning uptake will be quick as the assets already exist.
Once the test flight is successful in the middle of 2023, Aviation H2 will have a patentable method for modifying planes so they operate on carbon-free fuel.
Following this, they will seek to certify and commercialise this product via a planned public listing on a major exchange in Q4 of 2023.

Experts watching as Aviation H2 continues to go from strength to strength

Aviation H2 has impressed analysts with a show of strength after inking a strategic partnership with FalconAir and completing their feasibility study.

Hear what experts think about Aviation H2’s progress in the Australian Financial Review. The interest sparked by some of Australia’s most respected financial reporters shows the company is on track to revolutionise the aviation industry and provide it with one of the world’s first carbon-free solutions

H2X signs a deal with Trelleborg Municipality to supply hydrogen buses and a waste truck

H2X has signed a memorandum of understanding with Trelleborg Municipality to develop the City’s first-ever hydrogen high floor buses and a waste truck through local energy company Trelleborg Energi.

Highlights:

  • H2X to supply the first of its hydrogen buses into Sweden to the Trelleborg Municipality through Trelleborg Energi.
  • The new hydrogen fuel cell bus and waste truck is the next step for Trelleborg municipality and Trelleborg Energi on the journey to reduce the municipality’s carbon footprint.
  • The hydrogen bus and waste truck will be the first of 10 to join the fleet in the Trelleborg Municipality’s first steps to reach zero emission by 2045.
  • This agreement is in line with Trelleborg Energi’s aim to introduce hydrogen solutions in Trelleborg, as part of the company’s development of local, sustainable energy solutions.

Liquid Ammonia is the carbon-free fuel of choice for Aviation H2

Following a three-month feasibility study, Aviation H2 has selected the use of liquid ammonia to turbofan combustion as the best route to carbon-free flight and will soon start modifying turbofan engines to test and prove the concept.

Their research shows that converting a Falcon 50 to Liquid Ammonia Turbofan Combustion is the most efficient and commercially viable avenue to building a hydrogen-powered plane.
The company’s team of world-renowned engineers say they now have a clear pathway to having Australia’s first hydrogen-fuelled aircraft in the skies by the middle of 2023.
“By implementing this power path, Aviation H2 can fly aircraft with hydrogen fuel using significantly less weight than alternative power paths while generating the same amount of power,” says Aviation H2 Director, Dr Helmut Mayer.
“There are multiple reasons why liquid ammonia was selected. Chiefly its advantages include high gravimetric and volumetric hydrogen density that makes it lighter and easier to transport while providing a greater energy conversion rate.”
“In fact, the stored weight of liquid ammonia energy is substantially lighter than gaseous hydrogen and can be kept at a much lower tank pressure.”
Dr Mayer says this is supported by anhydrous ammonia reaching liquefaction point quicker, which makes it a lot simpler to store when compared to liquid or gasified hydrogen.
Additionally, worldwide transportation and handling of liquid ammonia has been around for many years, making ammonia as a carbon-free fuel even more appealing.
Turbofans are a widely used type of jet engine that are known for their high fuel efficiency.
“When liquid ammonia is used in the combustion chamber, a turbofan can produce the same amount of thrust as traditional fuel sources.”

Celebrating Earth Day

In celebration of Earth Day, on the 22nd April, Liberty Energy Capital confirmed its commitment to being a global leader in renewable energy.

We believe a carbon-free future can be forged through technological advancement, which is why we are supporting innovators developing cutting-edge solutions in this space.
We are strategically working to grow multiple green energy businesses to create an end-to-end hydrogen industry. Our diverse portfolio covers all sections of the market, from input to output.
With a significant focus on hydrogen, along with gasification, biomass, biochar and renewable energy, you can expect us to continue to announce more projects, deals and investment opportunities.

Over the past 12-18 months, we have played a critical role in multiple renewable energy companies such as H2X, Infinite Blue Energy, Port Anthony Renewables, Titan Hydrogen, Aviation H2, H2I Technology, Patriot Hydrogen, and Poseidon Marine H2.

We plan to capitalise on this momentum by working with like-minded businesses to build the next generation of legacy assets powered by clean energy, while also creating an internationally competitive sector within Australia.
Our mission is to develop solutions through state-of-the-art technology that will provide a pathway for the true decarbonisation of the global economy so we can reach net-zero emissions targets.
