Hydrogen Student Design Contest
The 2017 Hydrogen Student Design Contest will challenge 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.
The Contest is open to undergraduate and graduate (including Ph.D.) students worldwide. Team members must be enrolled in a college or university at the time of abstract submission but do not have to be enrolled full-time. Students who are working or researching part-time in the field or a related field of the Contest topic may participate.
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.
Each team is limited to a maximum of two faculty advisors. Multiple teams from one institution are permitted. However, each team must work independently to keep the competition fair for other teams.
Teams are encouraged to include members from only one school. If collaboration between different schools is desired, the team leader and designated faculty advisor must request approval by submitting the team registration form with a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Teams with students from more than three schools are not allowed.
A team of about 8 students is recommended, although teams with no less than 3 or up to 12 students are allowed. Teams may not exceed 12 students at any time. In cases where more than 12 students are interested in participating in the Contest, students are encouraged to split into two separate teams.
Registration is open, and the deadline for submitting yours and your team members’ names is September 15, 2017.
