2014 Hydrogen Student Design Contest

January 14, 2014

This webinar, sponsored by the Fuel Cell Technologies Office, focused on the winning entries of the 2013 Hydrogen Student Design Contest from the University of Kyushu and University of Birmingham. This year, teams were challenged to develop hydrogen fueling infrastructure plans for the Northeast and mid-Atlantic for the 2013-2025 time frame. The first place winner, the University of Kyushu's design, centered around developing fueling clusters in urban areas, which then are expanded into suburban areas and along highways to facilitate cross-state travel. The University of Birmingham placed second and proposed a "hydrogen highway" system connecting Boston to Washington, D.C., before connecting most areas in the Northeast. During the webinar the theme for the 2014 contest—Designing a Drop-in Fueling Station—was also discussed.
