Managed realignment involves the deliberate breaching of engineered defences to allow landward coastal migration whilst at the same time creating intertidal marshes and mudflats. Over the last two decades, this practice has become more common; however, the monitoring of realignment schemes is relatively limited and morphological changes are...

The notion of terroir covers the interaction between the natural, the cultural conditions and the grape vine itself relative to the character of the final wine product. It is about a dynamic chain whose factors get different weights in each wine region and this results in the typicality of the different terroir wine products. The Old World wine...

CityGML is a standardized data format used to store the semantic information and geometries of buildings and other object classes of 3D city models. The Level of Detail of current state of the art city models (LoD2) is not sufficient for accurate environmental simulations like noise, the solar potential of windows and other types of analyses. An...

We do live in interesting times. Social, political and financial turmoil, peak oil and nuclear accidents all contribute to the realisation that perhaps things need to change in our energy system. Providing the right type of energy at the right place at the right time is of course the answer. As the potential yields of renewable energy sources...

Even if renewable energy generation is improving and diffusing rapidly, reliable energy access is still a major issue for a consistent part of the global population, with more than 1 billion people still lacking energy access globally. The vast majority of this share of population is living in remote rural areas of developing countries,...

Detection of partial discharge (PD) in any high voltage equipment is of great importance to improve the reliability of the device and the power system. Characteristics of PDs, such as: rate of occurrence, magnitude, location and the type; gives information of the assets that must be considered. Nowadays, there are many different methods for...

In the Netherlands, many cities aim to promote cycling as a solution for sustainable mobility. However, the bicycle parking shortage is common. The popularity of ‘car-free city’ concept provides the opportunity to solve the problem by replacing car parking spaces to bicycle parking spaces. This study used a GIS-based location-allocation method...

Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) is a geothermal technique that is an important component in the transition towards renewable energy in the heating and cooling industry, which accounts for half of the world's energy consumption. However, the technology has not yet been implemented in many countries. The main reason is that extensive...

<b>What are the national and provincial economic potentials of ocean thermal energy conversion in relation to the provincial electricity demand fulfilment in Indonesia?</b> When we are talking about the economic potential of OTEC in Indonesia, we are talking about potential as a result of different possible configurations. On the national level,...

The focus of this investigation is the location, sizing and performance of a Hydrogen Fueling Station (HFS) in The Netherlands in 2030. The transportation sector is one of the main air pollution sources, reaching 17% of the total emissions from The Netherlands in 2015. By promoting zero emission vehicles, like Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs)...

The rapid growth of the PV industry has meant that prices have been falling steeply, making them more accessible for a wider range of applications. The combined use of noise barriers as energy generating facilities, usually coined as PVNBs has been occurring since the late 80’s. It has not realised wide spread implementation, remaining mostly in...

This research strives to contribute to the solution of the Amsterdam waste problem by improving the location determination of the various container types within the Centrum area. One of the modalities is an autonomous surface vehicle (ASV), and in this case, a Roboat. Since it is not possible to assign all demand to one modality, also trucks and...

In modern-day spatial planning, the implementation of public participation has increased to find a balance between two major actors: the government as the powerholder and citizens as the individual affected by planning decisions. Cities are required to redefine their public participation strategies by adopting modern tools to increase their...

Indonesia is facing a challenge in fulfilling its future energy demand given the combination of a consistently high economic growth and a fast-growing population. The country also needs to increase the integration of renewable energy into the electricity system. Wind energy, one of the renewable energy alternatives, is severely underutilized in...

As a solution to the high greenhouse gas emissions and declining quality of life caused by the private vehicle, the mobility hub is introduced. The mobility hub is a place where multiple modalities come together, including public transport and shared mobility. As the mobility hub is a relatively new innovation, limited research is available on...

This research is aimed at designing and optimising a fully renewable energy system for the GCC countries of the Arabian Peninsula for the year 2050 . This includes deriving the energy potential of open-field PV and wind technologies in the region. Apart from the electricity demand of the power sector, the hydrogen demand of the steel, ammonia...

Today’s climate change creates a serious issue, which forces us to act by reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions across every sector. Making changes towards a sustainable world takes time and creates competition. Hydrogen has the potential to fuel a ‘clean’ economy because it is a carbon free energy carrier that can be produced from fossil fuels as...

Keeping maps up to date is quite costly because road geometry changes over time and mapping by professional surveyors is an expensive operation. With the presence of GPS sensors on mobile phones and in most cars today it becomes possible to measure the location of roads with many measurements from sensors of lower accuracy. In this thesis we...

We all have walked on a street when suddenly someone comes over to you asking for directions. Sometimes, people do not know where they are and they do not know how to reach their destination. They are lost. However, people should not depend on others to find their way. The urban fabric should be legible enough to find one’s way. The problem...

The thesis consists of 7 chapters. The first chapter will explain the background, motivations and the general overview of the thesis. Chapter 2 is a literature review describing the physics behind the creation of PDs. The conditions necessary for the occurrence of PDs are covered in addition to an analysis of the different types of PD in GIS...
