Hydrogen fueled vehicles produce no emissions and can save drivers 30-40 percent on gasoline or diesel fuel.

“This is our third event in less than a year.” said organizer Joe Shea, “This demonstrates the surging interest in alternative fuels that can help Americans get off the fossil-fuel treadmill that’s so costly at the pump and bad for the environment”.

The games have one key objective: to cross-pollinate the ideas, designs and inventions of HHO developers from all over the world.

The event allows vendors, scientists, and inventors from across the country to market their cutting edge ideas on how to end our dependence on fossil fuels by developing automobiles that operate in a far more sustainable way using hydrogen generating systems and hybrid conversions.

The theme for the event is “New Fuel For America!”

Tickets are $5.00 adults, children free.

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
