Hydrogen Education Foundation Student Design Contest Information

On behalf of the Hydrogen Education Foundation (HEF), the students of your university are invited to participate in the 2016 Hydrogen Student Design Contest: “Development of a Hydrogen Powered Microgrid for Grid Services and Back-Up.”  The Hydrogen Student Design Contest ( is an annual competition that has been funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, NREL, and industry sponsors since 2004.
This year’s contest will challenge students to design a hydrogen-powered microgrid capable of powering a town, military installation, port, or similar large facility for approximately 2 days, and be able to handle at least 10% of peak demand while the microgrid is active. The system should utilize local resources to produce and store hydrogen as well as provide hydrogen dispensing capabilities to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (HFCEVs). The system should be optimized for as little environmental and economic impact as possible.
The top team(s) will receive a paid trip to the Department of Energy’s Annual Merit Review in Washington, DC to present their plan to a diverse audience of industry, academic, and government leaders, have their winning entry published in the IAHE International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, participate in a Department of Energy webinar, and have the chance to secure an internship with an industry sponsor.
You can find a copy of the Rules & Guidelines at the following link: We would appreciate any feedback you have regarding the contest.
The registration deadline is February 10, 2016. To register for this year’s contest online please go
If you have any questions you may email contest coordinator Vera Medici at
