Registration is open for university students worldwide until January 16, 2015.
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 U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, is open at www.hydrogencontest.org until January 16, 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. A full description of prize packages can be found online.
Students interested in participating in the Contest can register early by December 8 or by the final deadline of January 16, 2015. The Rules and Guidelines are available on the Contest website as well. The deadline for abstracts is also January 16, 2015.
