Future energy systems will present high penetrations of variable renewable energy (VRES). Due to the uncertainty that is related to the intermittency of wind and solar energy, and loads such as electric vehicles, the need for flexibility will be higher. This research identifies the possible sources of flexibility in a power system. Firstly,...

The effects of India’s shift towards economic liberalisation, globalisation and privatisation in the mid 1990’s has drastically altered the landscape of its cities. These powerful forces have imposed further spatial disjuncture on an unplanned city. More specifically, forces of contemporary urbanisation plague the developing fabric of Mumbai’s...

The growing share of renewable electricity generation poses a balancing challenge on the electricity grid and thus increases probability of for congestion on the electricity grid. On the supply side, flexibility can be built into the system. One option for a market to avoid congestion is the redispatch market, which is the way of solving...

Over the last hundred years cities have sprawled out. Amsterdam despite being one of the denser cities also faced this phenomenon. Today, Amsterdam is very desired by dwellers and it puts the city in a difficult situation. The city can’t expand outwards and need to densify within the city perimeters. However, with the design philosophy of the...

The inland ports play an important role in the Dutch transport system, but it will undergo changes as a result of the societal changes in demand for services and goods and the changes in hydraulic conditions. The inland port has to adapt to these developments in order to reduce the threats and to increase the opportunities, but this requires...

In The Netherlands, the current heat energy system accounts for 44% of the primary energy usage and relies almost entirely on fossil fuels such as natural gas. To meet the Paris Climate Agreement goals, 4th Generation District Heating (4GDH) networks are expected as sustainable heat energy system solution. The concept relies on optimally...

The volatile production of renewable energy sources is often considered a key issue in future sustainable energy systems. Drawing on microgrid research, we argue that the potential synergy between microgrid energy management and provision of flexibility services to the wider grid could be further explored. In addition, the trade-off between cost...

The monument ‘Katoenveem’ used to be part of the industrial harbour of Rotterdam as warehouse. It was specifically constructed for the operational purpose of loading and storing goods: bales of cotton. Strategically situated along the water, it translated itself to an early 20th century functional architecture with advanced mechanics. The cotton...

Increased variable renewable energy sources penetration in The Netherlands require more flexibility that could be provided by distributed energy resources located at small end-users combined with demand response. Aggregators could act as intermediary entities to exploit the flexibility potential of small end-users and create value for...

Despite the fact that pop-up and temporary architecture is slowly evolving, there is much room<br/>for improvement. While the focus is in the function it serves, it very commonly lacks in the aesthetic<br/>aspect and the quality of the space, being perceived by many as cheap, fast and disposable. Similarly, in the technical aspect, it lacks the...

The growth of electricity generated by renewables increases the intermittency of the Dutch electricity production. To deal with this, the Dutch power system requires a higher amount of flexibility in the future. Demand response with heat pumps is one of the options with a high potential to provide flexibility, because it offers the potential to...

The building I designed for my graduation project focused on finding ways in which to break the rules governing functions of the historic building, as said by Paul Virilio, to “inhabit the inhabitual”, by reusing and giving new functions to buildings that have been abandoned. The building will host three main functions related to a water...

The project concerns the refurbishment of post-war housing, specifically the Camera Obscura in Utrecht. The proposed plan is based upon: 1) technical parameters for energy neutrality, 2) the problems specified by the building analysis and 3) four types of flexibility, to enable inhabitants to influence their dwellings.
