Decentralised solar electricity generation on a large scale is a relatively new phenomenon. In the State of New York, the adoption of this form of renewable electricity generation has seen a surge over the last decade. However, policies that have been implemented over the last year, prompted experts to question the future of the market. The...

Food waste remains a large problem globally, not only in the light of global greenhouse gas emissions, but also in the light of decreasing resource availability. Research in this area has so far mainly focused on behavioral factors influencing production of food waste, while the formal and informal institutions that relate to the management of...

The Dutch government has set an ambitious goal: by 2030, greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands should be 49% lower than they were in 1990.But even though geothermal energy is gaining recognition given the high heating demand in the Netherlands and its subsurface potential, implementation of this technology, especially in urban areas, is...

India has experienced rapid industrialisation which has led to a significant increase in consumption and, in turn, in waste generation. The informal waste sector (IWS) plays a key role in managing consumer waste. However, this sector is subject to negative social and economic conditions and its integration in formal systems remains unsolved....

Misinformation on social media is an urgent grand challenge. Misinformation has caused excess deaths because people abstain from getting vaccinated and other evidence-based prevention behaviors. Misinformation also influences various other important topics such as climate change. And it has the potential to influence countless other areas. In...

As our electricity system becomes more complex, decentralized, and unstable, research on solutions to relieve the grid are needed. Local energy storage could contribute significantly to the solution. This study focused on one solution in particular: the neighborhood battery. Neighborhood batteries are emerging as a technical and social...

Climate change intensifies the frequency and severity of floods - the most devastating and costly climate-induced hazard. Government adaptations such as dikes or beach nourishments are important, yet insufficient in the face of worsening hazards. They reduce the hazard probability, but the local actions at the household level determine the...

The accessibility and affordability of small scale renewable energy sources cause a shift towards an decentralized energy system with distributed electricity generation. Together with the increased attention to responsible innovation, the polycentric development of multiple governing authorities gives room for social innovation. This empowers...

Verheul, Dolf (author)
Most policies for mitigating climate change are to date orchestrated top-down, yet have not been as effective as anticipated. Recently, non-state actors (NSAs) are being considered as complementary contributors to climate change mitigation, allowing for a more bottom-up, decentralized approach. NSAs, as the name suggests, are not affiliated with...

The increase in consumption of resources has led to more waste being generated, which then needs to be managed at the end of their life-cycle as waste. Current practices of waste management are not efficient as they lead to a release of emissions and a loss of value that is present in the resource, which is discarded as waste. New legislation...

Cities are getting more congested and polluted as they grow; transportation is one of the contributors to this. Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) could revolutionise the transportation sector for people. In MaaS, the car-sharing schemes will play a vital role and can help in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, in the long-term, these...

Transport infrastructures that connect ports to the hinterland are important enablers of economic growth and development in the region. Therefore, infrastructure owners and governments on different levels are engaging in climate adaptation to adapt transport infrastructures to actual or expected climatic hazards. Existing research on the...

Castelo Branco Ferreira Costa, Rafael (author)
The development of energy communities across the globe is a landmark for the development of decentralized generation, supporting the transition to renewable energy sources. However, energy communities focus on households with little attention to industries or towards the development of Industrial Community Energy Systems. A central issue is the...

In order to mitigate climate change, the energy system will have to change dramatically. Energy production has historically been a centralized process without citizen participation. Recently, the energy production system is becoming increasingly decentralized. However, a polycentric energy production system requires active citizen involvement....

In this research, an Agent-Based Model is developed in order to gain insight in the effect of the design principles on the robustness of collective action on community gardens. The model is based on among others Elinor Ostrom's design principles, the Institutional Analysis and Development Framework, the Theory of Reasoned Action and a case study...

As extreme weather events increase both in frequency and magnitude (IPCC, 2012, 2014), and considering that over 60% of the world population lives in coastal areas (UNEP, 2016) flood risk is increasing. Hereby, the need to address Flood Risk Management (FRM) becomes evident. Especially on small island the need for adequate FRM is apparent: ...

Biogas networks can reduce CO2 emissions by replacing natural gas consumption with biogas consumption. This means that biogas production can contribute to the Dutch targets to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% and increase renewable energy production to 16% by 2020 compared to 1990 levels. It is unclear how the biogas infrastructure system will...

Energy is inherent part of our current life. No one can imagine living without it. It has changed the lifestyle of people and it will continue to do so in future. About 80% of current global total primary energy supply belongs to non-renewable resources. It is also expected that non-renewable resources dominate in total primary energy supply in...

The Master's programme Industrial Ecology is jointly organised by Leiden University and Delft University of Technology. The horticulture sector in the Netherlands is facing economic difficulties, which have become more severe since the crisis of 2008. The innovation strategies the growers select to stimulate their organizations, are identified...
