About the Contest

Since 2004, the 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.

The Contest is open to undergraduate and graduate students worldwide. Multiple teams from one institution are permitted. Submissions are evaluated by a diverse panel of judges that include industry representatives and officials at U.S. Department of Energy.

History

Although the Contest designs are concepts when submitted, the Grand Prize winning teams from 2004 and 2005 each attracted the funding necessary for actual development and implementation: a new hydrogen fueling station and power park, respectively. The station designed in 2004 had its grand opening at Humboldt State University on September 9, 2008.  The winning design in 2008, which included a back-up and portable power system powered by hydrogen for airports, has generated a great deal of interest for implementation at the Columbia International Airport in Columbia, South Carolina.
