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 announced that the 10th annual Hydrogen Student Design Contest will challenge student teams to design a transportable, containerized hydrogen fueling station solution.

Registration for the contest, supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, is open at www.hydrogencontest.org until 15 January 2014.

Through the Contest, multidisciplinary student teams will demonstrate their talents in engineering, public planning, architecture, marketing, and entrepreneurship. In previous years, teams have designed fueling stations, airport systems and green buildings – all using hydrogen.

The Grand Prize winning team will receive an expenses-paid trip to present their winning entry to hundreds of industry professionals in a session at the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo 2014, 5-9 May in Long Beach, CA.

Interested students should register online and review the rules and guidelines.

Companies interested in sponsoring this student activity should contact Emanuel Wagner, Hydrogen Education Foundation at [email protected] or +1-202-223-5547 x360 by 13 January 2014.
