Engineering students win award from National Clean Energy Contest
Date:2/16/2011

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) -- A team of University of California, Riverside Bourns College of Engineering undergraduate students received national honors Wednesday for the third time in the past year for their research aimed at generating hydrogen and developing clean, affordable fuel cells to generate electricity.

The students - Jason Skovgland, Joon-Bok Lee, Christian Contreras and Marcus Chiu, all fourth-year chemical engineering majors, and Joshua Goins, an MBA student - placed second against 54 teams from throughout the world in a Department of Energy contest in Washington, D.C. The team won for their design for a residential hydrogen fueling system for a hydrogen vehicle in a single family home.

"It's thrilling to be honored, especially when you are competing against students at top universities like Harvard and Princeton," said Contreras, a graduate of Cathedral City High School.

In January, the American Public Power Association awarded the team one of 10 Demonstration of Energy-Efficient Developments (DEED) awards.

In May 2010, the students received a $10,000 phase one grant from the Environmental Protection Agency's National Student Design Competition for Sustainability Focusing on People, Prosperity and the Planet (EPA P3). In April, the students will return to Washington, D.C. to find out if they won the $75,000 phase two grant.

"It's really remarkable what these students have accomplished," said Kawai Tam, the students' advisor and a lecturer at the Bourns College of Engineering. "This one team has won the most awards in the history of our chemical and environmental engineering department."

Under the guidance of Tam and Yushan Yan, a professor of chemical and environmental engineering, the students started work on the project in September 2009 for the EPA P3 competition. They were looking for an efficient, affordable and green way to bring electricity to the
