100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply

The Hydrogen Education Foundation has issued a press release today announcing its 9th annual Hydrogen Student Design Contest.  The contest will challenge student teams to create a feasible plan to implement a hydrogen infrastructure for fuel cell vehicle travel in North Atlantic and Mid Atlantic US.

The winning team will receive an expenses-paid trip (sponsored by Toyota and Mercedes-Benz) to present their winning entry to hundreds of industry professionals in a session at the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo 2013, June 24-27 in Washington, D.C. A full description of prize packages can be found online at www.HydrogenContest.org
Students interested in participating in the Contest should send an abstract by October 1, 2012 to [email protected] and review the rules and guidelines, which are available on the Contest website.

Registration is open for students worldwide at www.hydrogencontest.org until October 1, 2012
