Hydrogen Student Design Contest 2017 challenges student teams from around the world to “Design a Power-to-Gas System“, a system that uses electricity to produce hydrogen for cross market uses, including energy storage, ancillary services, and transportation fuel. The teams will choose a site in their area, engage their local electric and gas utility, coordinate with regulatory bodies and safety experts, and create educational materials, including a short video.
Since 2004, the HEF Hydrogen Student Design Contest has challenged multi-disciplinary teams of university students to apply their creativity and academic skills in the areas of design, engineering, economics, environmental science, business and marketing to the hydrogen and fuel cell industries.
Multiple teams from one institution are permitted, but students may not belong to more than one team, and teams must work independently.
Given the multi-disciplinary nature of this competition, teams are highly encouraged to include students with various expertise, including: industrial design, engineering (all types), economics, business, environmental science, policy, chemistry, marketing, education, or any other field of study relevant to the team’s design. A team with students from diverse backgrounds will help address non-technical sections much better than a homogenous team.
