Key points:

  • Powerhouse Endergy shares surged 8.05% after announcing a Japanese deal.
  • The waste gasification company revealed that its parter had signed an LOI.
  • PHE shares look attractive at current prices given last year’s decline

The Powerhouse Energy Group PLC (LON: PHE) share price surged 8.05% after its partner, Hydrogen Utopia International (HUI), revealed that it had signed a letter of intent with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to bring PHE’s DMG technology to Japan.

Investors cheered the agreement, which could lead to the installation of Powerhouse’s proprietary DMG® technology at Japanese sites in the future if a real deal is signed between the HUI and Mitsubishi.

However, PHE shares had given up most of their gains at writing since a binding agreement is yet to be signed, which means the deal could fall through with time.

Still, if a real deal materialises, Powerhouse Energy could profit significantly given that the firm is entitled to a £500,000 annual license fee from each commissioned project based on its deal with HUI.

Today’s announcement marks a small win for PHE, given the rising competition within the waste-gasification industry.

Aleksandra Binkowska, HUI’s CEO, commented: “Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has led the development of environmentally friendly technology in Japan for the last 40 years, helping to move towards a carbon-neutral world. We are privileged and honoured to have entered into this agreement with Mitsubishi, which we are very hopeful will lead to a roll-out of HUI facilities across Japan.”

Today’s announcement is a positive milestone for PHE whose shares fell over 51% in the past year and are down 8.41% since the year started. However, the firm could still end the year on a positive note if it secures more deals and commissions multiple projects this year.

PHE shares may look attractive to long-term investors in the waste-gasification industry given last year’s significant decline. However, there are no guarantees that the shares will end the year higher.
