The Evolution Energy Systems design team, comprised of ERE students, IDT students and Faculty Advisor, won the grand prize in the 2005 H2U international design competition sponsored by the US Department of Energy and ChevronTexaco. The award was presented by Rick Zalesky, President of ChevronTexaco Technology Ventures' Hydrogen Business at the 2005 National Hydrogen Association) annual hydrogen meeting. The competition challenged university students to design a hydrogen power park which is a small to medium sized energy station providing combined heat and power as well as hydrogen vehicle fuel at a centralized location.
