In the context of the ongoing energy transition away from fossil fuels the Dutch government sees great potential in the district heating sector as a key sector to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the heat provision sector. In addition, because of the fuel-flexibility of heat production facilities for district heating, district heating may...

The North West European electricity market is undergoing significant changes. The market is in the process of increased integration while coping with increasing shares of Variable Renewable Energy output. To ensure generation adequacy is ensured on a national level a myriad of market designs have sprung up. These designs may interfere with the...

Over the past decades, the trade of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has been increasing. Firms export LNG to serve new markets, and serve markets where higher premiums are offered. Firms import LNG in order to diversify their import portfolio for reasons of security of supply and to capitalise on global price differences. Because of the increasing...

Given the current vulnerability of the profitability of power plants to price volatilities and government policy changes, the role of risk considerations in power plant investment decisions becomes increasingly important. However, when we look at simulation studies that look into the long-term impact of different policy designs on electricity...

The current decentralized support schemes for stimulating renewable energy from electricity (RES-E) in the Member States (MS) of the European Union (EU) cause cost inefficiencies, distort the market and competition and exhibit unclear welfare effects. RES-E policy harmonization, a top-down approach that equalize, support schemes among MS, can...

The electricity transmission system, lynchpin of the power system chain, has been recognized to play a significant role in fulfilling policy targets such as high integration levels of renewable energy sources, reduction of CO2 emissions, lower electricity costs and increased security of supply. In the European context, cross-border transmission...

To limit global warming, greenhouse gases need to substantially be reduced in all sectors of the economy (IPCC, 2014). The Netherlands has translated this to ambitious goals towards a more sustainable environment. It aims to reach a 40% CO2 emission reduction compared to 1990 and have 27% of the total generated energy be produced through...

TenneT's projects are increasingly becoming more complex and dynamics. How does this reflect on their decision making? One of the key cases discussed in the thesis is the option of underground high-voltage substations. Scientifically this research has contributed to institutional theory and agenda-setting theory. A conceptual model for...

This paper suggests a novel perspective on project management and it’s value. Project management is widely accepted as a relevant perspecti’ve on the development of large engineering projects. Over time it proved its value and through incremental improvement has developed further. Although often applied for the development of projects project...

PV prosumers could have a significant contribution to the 20/20/20 goals, but the Dutch electricity system is not equipped for this. The current net metering policy has an uncertain future and net metering takes away the time dependent, system critical, component of the balance of demand and supply for prosumers. An integrated transaction cost...

Within electricity markets, serious concerns exist whether a competitive electricity market will provide the necessary incentives for investment in generation. In Europe several countries are looking at the options of implementing a capacity mechanism. A capacity market provides a possible solution to this problem of generation adequacy but the...

In the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011, several countries have decided to rethink their energy policies and subjected their nuclear reactors to stress tests. According to national law drafted in 2003, Belgium must have phased out all seven nuclear reactors by 2015-2025. However, to date Belgium still has not presented...

The call for lower CO2 emissions has increased the integration of renewable energy sources in the electricity system. However, these intermittent sources do not follow the cycles of demand and are unpredictable in their nature. As the electrical system needs to constantly balance supply and demand, these renewable sources cause problems in the...

In the upcoming years, electricity markets in Europe face numerous challenges both on production and demand side. Due to decreasing investment costs for renewable energy sources (RES) and continuing government support for a transition towards green energy technologies, the market share of uncertain and volatile generation capacity will grow....

In the last few decades, the European Union has directed most of its efforts towards the creation of an internal market, free of internal borders, where competition reigns and the invisible hand guides the market to a social optimum. The assumptions on which this ideal is based, however, do not always hold in practice, especially when it...

Portfolio theory is one of the few convenient theories for analyzing portfolio investments in electricity markets. Originating from financial markets the application of portfolio theory however showed to have difficulties in dealing with the complexities existing power markets. Especially the introduction of CO2-prices caused problems that could...

The strong focus of the European Union towards renewable energy led to an increased share of wind and photovoltaic power in North-West Europe. Both technologies are dependent on the weather causing the need for fossil fuel based backup power plants. Hydropower in Norway and Sweden could be the perfect sustainable alternative for these power...
