Hydrogen Education Foundation Press Release
2016 Contest to Design a Hydrogen Powered Micro-Grid


WASHINGTON, DC – October 8, 2015 – Today, on National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day, the Hydrogen Education Foundation (HEF) announced the topic of its 2016 Hydrogen Student Design Contest. The HEF is planning to challenge student teams to design a hydrogen powered micro-grid to provide grid support and services, including back-up power for a municipality.


The HEF is actively encouraging industry partners to consider supporting the Contest, and interested parties should contact Emanuel Wagner, Hydrogen Education Foundation at or +1-202-223-5547 x360.


The Contest will challenge multidisciplinary student teams to demonstrate their creativity and academic skills in the areas of design, engineering, economics, and environmental science. In previous years, teams have designed fueling stations, airport systems and green buildings – all using hydrogen. Although the Contest designs are concepts when submitted, previous Grand Prize winning teams have gone on to attract funding for actual development and implementation.
