Currently our energy supply system is experiencing a transition towards more sustainable energy generation with an increased amount of renewable energy. However, the high fluctuations in renewable energy generation make balancing demand and supply more complex. One solution to cope with high production fluctuations is to improve the energy...

Within several testing grounds in The Netherlands, Decentralized System Operators (DSOs) test a variety of smart grid solutions in order to anticipate on expected peak load increase; Most future energy system scenarios point out issues related to the functioning of the grid. Examples are blackout risks and large voltage fluctuations, which occur...

To decrease the dependence on fossil fuels and strive for a more sustainable heat provision in the Netherlands, district heating is a solution. Although district heating networks are not novel, the Dutch ministry of Economic affairs desires a change in the district heating sector: ‘open’ district heating networks in which competition between...

The aviation industry is vital for economic growth, world trade, and is a major employer. Nearly $2.4 trillion in global GDP, 35% of world trade by value and 58.1 million jobs are supported by the industry. However, with these benefits comes an impact on the environment. In 2013, aviation produced 705 million tonnes of carbon dioxide,...

Bachelorthesis waar de maatschappelijke acceptatie van de energie opslagtechniek compressed air energy storage (CAES) is onderzocht met behulp van Structural Equation Modeling. CAES kan als opslagtechniek bijdragen aan het verhelpen van de variabiliteit en onvoorspelbaarheid van een duurzame energievoorziening. Bij CAES wordt elektriciteit in de...

The Car Park Power Plant (CPPP) concept is in its essence a parking garage in which parked fuel cell vehicles are used for the generation of electricity. By including on-site hydrogen production methods, the CPPPs could purchase electricity when it is cheap, store it, and convert it back to electricity when the electricity price is high. System...

This research has been aimed at identifying internally consistent and plausible narratives on the pathways of society’s response to climate change. In this research, society’s response to climate change has been interpreted as the emergence of climate change mitigation action by society. Studying society’s response to climate change is hampered...

This research presents a new way to assess the impact of location decisions for new power plants by power producers. It builds on an existing agent-based model that is able to simulate market and investment behavior of power produc- ers in a north western European electricity market (EMlab-generation). This study adds a module that is based on...

Simulation models become increasingly important in energy policy analysis. A literature review showed that there is demand for analysing the effect of multiple more realistic investment algorithms on the outcomes of energy policy analysis. The reason is that energy policy analysis could be incomplete without insight in the implications of the...

The EU and the Netherlands have set multiple energy transition objectives for the year 2020. In 2009 the European Council has formulated long term goals to reach 80-95% greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for 2050, which comes down to an 80% CO2-emission reduction overall and a 95% CO2-emission reduction in the fossil-fuelled power...

Consumers largely use outdated and inefficient lighting technology. If 40% of the electricity consumed in residential lighting could be saved, a 320 MW power plant could be taken off the grid. The European Union has acknowledged this problem. Its `ban on bulbs'--regulation tries to force consumers to switch to more efficient lighting (such as...
