As the transition to a low-carbon economy is imminent in the view of global warming and climate change, there comes a need to identify energy carriers that can completely or partially replace fossil fuels that are used today. Green hydrogen in this respect has been proposed and researched into as a possible replacement for currently used fossil...

In order to determine how the energy sector of the Netherlands can or should look in the future, energy scenarios are used to explore possible alternative futures. Many scenarios for the Netherlands exist, but a classification of contemporary Dutch electricity scenarios is missing. Additionally, agent-based modelling (ABM) has often been...

Improving energy efficiency is marked as one of the key strategies to tackle global warming. Therefore policy makers try to design policies that steer our society towards a more energy efficient way of living. An important target for policy makers is the residential sector. Households use fuel and electricity, to power all sorts of residential...

Low-grade heat sources are abundant on earth but are majorly untapped due to lower thermodynamic efficiency at low temperatures and cost considerations. A cost-effective technology is needed to convert this energy resource into useful forms of energy. This work aims at optimizing Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) based heat engine and a cogeneration...

reement, adopted by virtually all 195 countries of the United Nations, is a binding deal with targets to keep global warming of the earth beneath 2∘C, and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases in 2050 by at least 80% compared to 1990. These targets require significant reductions in energy consumption and switch to carbon free renewable energy...

There is growing consensus around the world for the need to transition to a more sustainable society. This is transition is currently being led by making the energy sector more sustainable by shifting to renewable energy sources from fossil fuel sources at a steady pace. However, there seems to be increasing recognition that the steady pace may...
