"Each year, the contest focuses on a key issue in the hydrogen and fuel cell industry," said Kyle Gibeault, Contest Coordinator. "For 2010-2011 we're looking at hydrogen fueling infrastructure from the residential perspective. Based on our experience in past years, I'm confident we will receive some very innovative and thought-provoking entries from the student teams."
Teams will be tasked with planning and designing a residential hydrogen fueling system for a home, apartment complex, dorm, or other single residential building. As a part of their entry, they will develop a technical design; conduct an economic analysis; and develop business, marketing, and public education plans for their systems.
The grand-prize-winning team will receive an expenses-paid trip to present their winning entry to thousands of industry professionals in a keynote session at the 2011 National Hydrogen Association Conference and Expo. Students from winning teams will receive priority consideration for summer internships with participating sponsors at supporting organizations, along with receiving other prizes.
Teams of university students worldwide can register to compete by October 15, 2010.
