Jeremy Felt recently gave me a copy of “Show your work!: 10 ways to share your creativity and get discovered” by Austin Kleon. I sat down and read cover to cover, closed the book, and realized that it was likely the catalyst to take the lab’s website to the next level. We’ll see. I’m definitely paying the favor forward. Thanks Jeremy,,, and Austin!
I recently made the case for a clean hydrogen economy in Washington State at the monthly Technology Alliance Science and Discovery Series. The slides from the talk are here. Alyssa Patrick was tweeting during the event and made a follow up blog post about the talk. In short, a clean hydrogen economy could happen soon and look like this in Washington State:
1) Hydrogen production: To add more infrequent renewables (wind, solar, tidal, etc.) to the grid, Bonneville Power needs more ways to balance the grid, adding power in some cases, removing power in others. Hydrogen electrolysis systems are ready and can respond rapidly … » More …
The DOE’s 2013 Fuel Cell Technologies Market Report discusses emerging trends in the hydrogen fuel cell industry. Genii is one of two technologies highlighted in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) section of the report: http://energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2014/11/f19/fcto_2013_market_report.pdf Way to go team!
Incidentally, it is the only mention of the State of Washington in the entire report (aside from Neah Power’s address).
HYPER lab members Ian Richardson and Jake Fisher are presenting their 2014 Hydrogen Student competition winning Fuel Station Design as a DOE Webinar this Thursday at 11am. Check out the webinar at the following link: http://energy.gov/eere/fuelcells/webinars
Video from the webinar will be posted in the following days.
The Greater Spokane Agricultural Area consortium recently toured WSU. The use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) research is a hot topic in Ag and the HYPER lab has several projects poised to make advances. The original article can be found here:
HYPER lab member Ian Richardson is featured in WSU news as one of 3 graduate students to win a national research fellowship:
Jeremy Felt represented WSU at WordCamp San Francisco last weekend. His point, in my opinion, foreshadows the bright future for communication we have here at WSU:
The HYPER labs winning design for the 2014 Hydrogen Student Design Competition is featured in the Fall 2014 edition of the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture (VCEA) alumni magazine Innovation on page 18.
Check out our lab’s feature on pages 36 & 37 in the August edition of Cold Facts: The Magazine of the Cryogenic Society of America. Jake Fisher and Ian Richard are highlighted in the piece.
The award winning hydrogen fuel station designed by Ian Richardson, Jake Fisher and Dr. Jake Leachman was mentioned in the latest version of Alaska Airline’s Magazine. The excerpt is available here on page 34 or is provided bellow.
“In May, a team comprising WSU students and one University of Idaho student-involved in academic tracks ranging from mechanical engineering to economics and public policy-won first place in an international student competition to design a transportable, stand-alone, economical refueling station for hydrogen fuel cell-power cars, whose use may help reduce carbon dioxide emissions.”
