The Hydrogen Education Foundation is currently accepting entries for its 2011-2012 Hydrogen Student Design Contest. Established in 2004 and supported by the Department of Energy, this contest challenges both undergraduate and graduate students worldwide to design hydrogen energy applications for real-world use. This year’s theme invites students to plan and design an innovative combined heat, hydrogen, and power (CHHP) system for their own university campus. As a part of their entry, teams will develop a feedstock analysis, technical design, address safety and code compliance, identify end-uses on campus, conduct an economic and environmental analysis, and develop business, marketing, and public education plans for their systems. For more information and how to apply, please visit http://www.hydrogencontest.org/contest.asp. Registration will end on November 1, 2011.
The Hydrogen Education Foundation promotes clean hydrogen energy technologies through student scholarships, innovative national competitions, and educational programs to encourage environmental stewardship, improve energy security, and create green jobs.
