January 14: Live Webinar on the 2014 Hydrogen Student Design Contest

Webinar Sponsor: EERE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Office

The Energy Department will present a live webinar titled “2014 Hydrogen Student Design Contest” on Tuesday, January 14, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. This webinar will focus on the winning entries of the 2013 Hydrogen Student Design Contest from the University of Kyushu and University of Birmingham. For the 2013 competition, teams were challenged to develop hydrogen fueling infrastructure plans for the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions for the 2013-2025 timeframe. The first place winner, University of Kyushu's design, focused on developing fueling clusters in urban areas, which could then be expanded into suburban areas and along highways to facilitate cross-state travel. The University of Birmingham placed second with its proposed "hydrogen highway" system that connects Boston to Washington, D.C., before connecting most areas in the northeastern United States. The theme for the 2014 contest—designing a drop-in fueling station—will also be discussed.
