Hydrogen Education Foundation Press Release
Registration Extended for 2015 Student Contest to Develop Innovative Hydrogen Station Business Models
Registration and abstract deadline extended to February 2 for university students worldwide

WASHINGTON, DC - January 15, 2015 - The Hydrogen Education Foundation has announced an extension of registration for the 11th annual Hydrogen Student Design Contest. The 2015 Contest challenges student teams to develop business and financing models for hydrogen fueling stations and is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.


"We want to give students in the U.S. and around the world more time to create their team up and develop an abstract for this year's contest," said Jeff Serfass, President of the Hydrogen Education Foundation, which manages the Contest. "We have therefore extended the registration period until February 2nd, 2015."


Through the Contest, multidisciplinary student teams will demonstrate their talents in business, finance, engineering, public planning, architecture, marketing, and entrepreneurship. In previous years, teams have designed fueling stations, airport systems and green buildings - all using hydrogen.


The top teams will be invited to present their design to a panel of industry professionals and investors, and the winning teams will be able to present their approach at a major industry conference. A full description of prize packages can be found online at www.HydrogenContest.org

The Rules and Guidelines, which are the key documents, are available on the Contest website as well.
Companies interested in receiving recognition by supporting this student activity should contact Emanuel Wagner, Hydrogen Education Foundation at ewagner@ttcorp.com or +1-202-223-5547 x360.
