The Hydrogen Education Foundation announced the 11th annual Hydrogen Student Design Contest, which will challenge student teams to develop business and financing models for hydrogen fueling stations. Finalists will be asked to pitch their plans to investors. Registration for the Contest, which is supported by the US Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, is open at www.hydrogencontest.org until 16 January 2015.
Through the Contest, multidisciplinary student teams will demonstrate their talents in business, finance, engineering, public planning, architecture, marketing, and entrepreneurship. In previous years, teams have designed fueling stations, airport systems, and green buildings—all using hydrogen.
The top teams will be invited to present their design to a panel of industry professionals and investors, and the winning teams will be able to present their approach at a major industry conference.
