In a modern environment users are more dependant on their ability to use their mobile phone for nearly everything. They communicate with almost any device and those devices provide nearly limitless access to for instance a watch or in new applications, a lock. Issues encountered with these devices are the almost always lack the ability to keep...

The main aim of the research is to passively use the on-site energy to create passive climate comfort. Usually this these passive strategies are not integrated into the design process but added to the building design later on when the building design is already finalized. The main topic of this building technology research is to integrate...

“Our” world is changing rapidly, man-made global warming, as a result of greenhouse emissions is causing more frequently extreme weather patterns such as droughts or cloudbursts. In order to change the current fossil fuel based economy, producing and emitting harmful greenhouse gasses, a transition is required from this fossil fuel based economy...

India is a country constantly grappling with problems of impeded rural development. Energy, in particular sustainable energy can be seen as key to attain the Sustainable Development Goals set out by the U.N. Integration of rural sectors can be seen as a methodology to broaden the potential achievement of the targetted Sustainable Development...

Traditionally, long flights were an adventure for the happy few, nowadays they are mostly characterized as being boring. Passengers respond to this by creating isolated cocoons in which the passenger experience privacy and comfort. This behavior is stimulated by airlines who provide mentally passive stimulation, e.g. listening to music or...

The costs of wind energy have to be reduced in order to be competitive with conventional methods to generate electricity. The tower costs contribute significantly to the costs of a wind turbine. This thesis aimed to suggest improvements in wind turbine tower design in comparison with industry standards nowadays in order to reduce the costs of...

Global turmoil concerning fossil fuels, questions relating to sustainable sources of energy and difficulties with sharing knowledge led to the creation of the Energy Transition Model (ETM) in the start of 2008. The ETM aims to be a transparent, comprehensive, fact-based, and independent model about energy related matters, ranging from CO2...

Cellular solids are characteristically excellent energy absorbers due to their capacity to store large amounts of energy through compression. A bioinspired design approach identified the Pomelo fruit (Citrus Maximus) as a biological role model for energy absorption. Fruit peels’ biologically most important functions lies in the need to provide...

A tethered wing can be used in two different ways, to lift payload or to provide traction power. The latter is the basis of several innovative technical applications, such as kite-assisted ship propulsion and pumping-kite wind energy conversion. This thesis presents a theoretical analysis of traction power generation by a tethered wing. The...

Limiting global temperature increase by 1.5 ̊C rather than 2 ̊C reduces the impacts of climate change significantly (Knutti et al., 2015; Schleussner et al., 2016). It requires a rigorous transition of the global energy system in a very short time span. Though, the published energy scenarios that focus on 1.5 ̊C are limited (Peters, 2016). In...

At the moment global climate change is one of the most prominent environmental and energy issues of our life time. Currently CO2 levels in the atmosphere stand at 387 ppm, almost 40% higher since the start of the industrial revolution and the highest for at least the last 650,000 years. About 96% of these carbon emissions are the result of using...

As we move towards an aging population, it is likely that an increasing number of people will require an increasing diversity of implants, but at a lower cost to the society. Also, as computer technology progresses, smaller, more powerful, and less battery intensive implants can be designed. However, present implant design methodology is highly...

Electricity is one of the most utilized energy carriers for energy transmission in the world. In recent years more electricity is generated from renewable energy sources. The main drawback of renewable energy sources is that renewable energy power plants are often connected to certain locations. Sometimes these renewable energy power plants are...

The Kloosterkerk is a 700 year old monumental church in The Hague. By analysing and researching the case and relevant literature, a design basis is made for redesigning the climate system. Several systems are developed and evaluated. In the end integrating a energy saving measures, a smart air heating system and PV panels has the most advantages.

Current solutions for energy supply of electrical equipment in gardens are very limited and do not suffice. The inductive energy distribution concept that was developed by the company E-Snake BV, named E-Snake, could be a solution, by providing simple electrical installation that allows for flexible take-off. However, the usability of the...
