Princen, Mick (author)
Greenhouse horticulture is a key sector in the Netherlands, significantly contributing to the economy and society but also heavily reliant on natural gas, leading to substantial CO2 emissions. The sector, in partnership with the government, aims to achieve climate neutrality by 2040 as part of the Energy Transition Covenant for Greenhouse...

This study addresses the revenue losses from network congestion of an Offshore Wind Farm (OWF) resulting from the implementation of an Offshore Bidding Zone (OBZ) and explores potential measures to mitigate these effects. The quantitative analysis involves a model that simulates a hypothetical OWF located in the North Sea between Norway and the...

In the European Union, heating and cooling account for 50% of the total energy consumption and half of the carbon emissions, as 75% of the energy is still supplied by fossil fuels. In the Netherlands, energy transition decision-makers are sailing in the dark in an attempt to realize the heat transition in high-density areas. How can market...

In the electricity system, one barrier to the energy transition is the degradation of frequency stability due to the decrease of system inertia and frequency control ancillary services (FCAS), which is caused by the replacement of inertia-abundant and governor-based conventional power plants with zero-inertia and inverter-based renewable energy...

The decarbonization of the energy system is driven by the electrification process and the expansion of variable renewable energy capacity. Green hydrogen, produced through electrolysis powered with renewable electricity, represents a major complementary vector that can support this transition. By enabling long-term storage, it addresses the...

This work seeks to resolve an outstanding problem in the use of reinforcement-learning methods for the simulation of economically-rational agents. We discuss the problem of non-stationarity, and how this subsequently limits market simulation capabilities. After explicating and isolating the source of the problem for a day-ahead electricity...

The transition to a carbon-neutral power system has become a global imperative, ever more driven due to recent events such as the energy crisis resulting from the Ukraine invasion. The Netherlands, devoted to the large-scale development of offshore wind and solar PV, see great potential in the use of hydrogen as a gas replacing energy carrier. A...

Climate change is a very urgent issue for our society. The European Union’s commitment is increasing, as evidenced by the Paris Agreement, and individual nations are also developing strategies to become emission-free within the next few years. This has renewed interest in hydrogen, particularly that produced through electrolysis, as a complement...

Achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement requires a significant transformation of current energy systems. The energy sector has hundreds of technologies and millions of actors working together to balance the system. Researchers are using computer-based models to understand the techno-economic impacts on the energy system due to changes in one...

The energy transition is gaining momentum in the Netherlands, but not without consequences. Due to energy grid congestion, developments are on hold as they cannot be connected to the energy grid due to limited capacity. The ACM has revised electricity grid regulations to optimize grid efficiency, which increased the risk of congestion during...

<br/>Following the climate goals of the Dutch government, a tremendous amount of vRES (variable Renewable Energy Sources) will be built. These energy sources will produce large amounts of power, which must travel great distances on the transmission grid. The Dutch TSO, TenneT, is responsible for the transmission grid's design, construction, and...

Electrification by means of renewable energy sources in electricity production (RES-E) is a key strategy to meet global climate goals established in the Paris Agreement. The increasing share of RES-E as a result of this has significant implications on the functioning of the electricity system and the adequacy of the electricity market design, as...

What would you think if your neighbour, who owns a Tesla and therefore causes extra load on the already congested electricity grid and you would have to pay these costs? Feels unfair, doesn’t it? This is currently happening in the Netherlands and it concerns millions of households that consume electricity. Electricity consumers are currently...

Although there is a common understanding that the use of variable renewable energy sources (VRES) is needed in our collective attempt to decarbonise society, the type of technology that we should deploy, and where is not so clear. Stakeholders from real-world projects use the outcomes from optimisation models to aid their decision-making process...

<br/>Power system planning is a strenuous exercise for both people and computers. As carbon goals and geopolit- ical complexities intensify, the number of scenarios for electricity system development is limitless. In search of robust policy and profitable investments, policymakers and investment managers rely on long-term elec- tricity system...

van Dijk, Bob (author)
Rapid intake of intermittent generation units, more decentralised production and electrification of demand impose serious challenges on transmission- and distribution electricity grids. Part of this challenge is an increasing amount of congestion on the grids. The Dutch redispatch market for congestion management needs to be adapted to include...

The transition towards an energy system with high shares of variable renewable energy (VRE) sources has significant implications for the electricity system's demand and supply of balancing services, i.e. all the services to level out frequency deviations in the electricity system. First, the intermittent character and limited predictability of...

The situation of power system reforms in Africa displays incomplete reform steps and unfulfilled goals. The performance statistics of the power system are very low and tremendous efforts remain to be exerted to bridge the gap. Reforms in Africa were pursued with the end goal of creating an electricity market on both the national and the regional...

With the fast-growing electricity demand, challenges arise affecting the reliability and the quality of the distribution network. The Dutch DSOs could expand the network capacity, but it is not sure if the network can be expanded fast enough. Network expansion will result in higher total consumer costs and if the network expansion rate is too...

Waste-to-Energy (WtE) serves as an important source to meet the growing energy demands of the world in a sustainable manner. It can help in the reduction of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions, lower the risk of environmental pollution and contribute towards the establishment of a circular economy. By generating steam or electrical energy, WtE...
