Reducing GHG emissions has become a widely publicized topic to halt future effects of global warming. In an effort to accelerate the energy transition a group of policy-maker from McKinsey developed a tool named marginal abatement cost curve (MACC) capable of illustrating the relationship between the cost-effectiveness of different abatement...

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...

Binding climate agreements and the necessity to lower greenhouse gas emission levels requires increasing implementation of carbon abatement options and supporting policies on a global level. Due to the wide range of possible strategies, policymakers experience problems in choosing the right carbon<br/>abatement strategy. This challenge has led...

This research has been performed to help the Dutch government with the decisions and choices it has to make in order to meet the requirements of the Paris Agreement and the Climate Agreement. Decentralized energy systems can be a solution for meeting these requirements, however trade-offs have to be made between different system criteria, which...

Marginal Abatement Cost (MAC) curves rank emission abatement options according to their marginal implementation cost and are an extremely popular tool to draft energy strategies. Although relevant and elegant, MAC curves are often insufficient to justify the implementation of abatement options, as many of the ones ranked financially convenient...

Hydrogen technology offers a promising opportunity to mitigate problems that arise due to the energy transition. It can enable storage and balancing for surplus in electricity production from intermittent resources as solar energy and wind power. Electrolysis converts green electricity into hydrogen. Hydrogen is suggested to be introduced into...

Cyberattacks are a constant threat to organisations worldwide. The uncertainty and difficulty of properly conducting cyber risk management processes do not make it easier for organisations to cope with cyberattacks. Cyber insurance can be a partial solution to the dilemma that organisations face. However, it has not seen the expected growth...

Increased Feed-in of renewable energy sources and an increase of sales of electric vehicles (EVs) complicate balancing of demand and supply. EVs are considered core enablers for dealing with intermittency due to their storage potential. This does however require that these EVs are charged according to smart charging protocols, which is a vehicle...

Due to the transition to sustainable transport, an increase of the share of electric vehicles is expected. The electric vehicles will increase the peak demand on the electricity grid. It is possible to shift the demand of the electric vehicles using smart grid technology. The electric vehicle owners have the option to use this smart electric...

The starting point of the thesis is that national CO2 policy options are complex. In other words, that there are non-economic factors that are play at the implementation of the CO2 options. Why do some CO2 options not materialize in the market, despite favorable economic conditions? Current methods for answering such questions are strongly...

The residential sector is responsible for over 55% of the natural gas consumption in the Netherlands. In the climate accord of Paris, the Netherlands came to an agreement with the rest of the world leaders to limit the overall temperature rise by reducing the consumption of and by switching away from carbon-based fuels. The gas mining induced...

Barriers to CO<sub>2 </sub>abatement impede their materialisation. In this research the Y-factor was used in expert interviews to gather information on the barriers to the materialisation of four abatement options in the Netherlands: Insulation, Carbon Capture Storage, Biofuels and Geothermal energy. The potential of these options for the...

Margot Wallstrom once argued that there can be no sustainable development without sustainable energy development. Despite several organizations already recognized that (rural) electrification leads to socio-economic developments and improvements related to health, productivity and education in 2013, 1.2 billion people – half of which in Africa –...

The Netherlands currently lacks a large scale aggregation system which can unlock decentralised flexibility to improve the reliability of the electricity grid in the presence of a significant amount of variable renewable energy sources. In this reserach, the aggregator blockchain technology is perceived as an enabler for a decentralised...

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...

The energy system is a complex socio-technical system, characterised by a multitude of stakeholders, different goals, long-term investments, and large scale sub systems with long lifetimes. The government of the Netherlands aims to support the transition of the energy system of the Netherlands towards a sustainable system by implementing policy...

Large-scale infrastructure projects such as ports can have a significant impact on the development of nearby cities. While economic benefits of the port spill over to other regions, often internationally operating firms, port-cities experience negative externalities like environmental and land use issues and traffic congestion. Traditional port...
