Freight transport is a crucial component of our society and economy. However, achieving sustainability in this sector is complex, due to a lack of incentives among stakeholders. The heavy-duty road transport sector is struggling to meet European emission standards. To address this issue, a research study examined the impact of combining Battery...

The pivotal sector of transportation has shown signs of a surge in demand. The European Union projects a 42% increase in passenger transport from 2019 until 2050. Policymakers and stakeholders must collaborate to address the increasing transportation demand while considering environmental, societal, and economic benefits Despite efforts to...

Society is facing a huge challenge in switching the energy sectors dependence on fossil fuels into an energy sector using mostly renewable energy sources. The switch towards using more sustainable energy sources is known as the energy transition. The goal of the energy transition is to lower the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions emitted by the...

The Dutch government has set a goal to phase out the use of natural gas by 2050. As a result, municipalities are focusing on implementing alternative heating strategies in certain neighbourhoods. However, districts with older building stocks are often neglected, raising concerns that city centers with older, poorly insulated buildings and high...

The Dutch government has set the ambitious target to be CO2 neutral by 2050. In order to achieve this goal, large volumes of hydrogen are necessary. And if large volumes of hydrogen are necessary, hydrogen transportation infrastructure is necessary. Based on the expected volumes of hydrogen supply and demand and the distance over which hydrogen...

Extensive electrification of the inland shipping sector is necessary to achieve the EU goals to be climate neutral and increase inland shipping by 50\% by 2050. This requires a thoughtful and large-scale roll-out of new charging stations layouts, for ships with relatively high and largely varying energy demands. Current approaches for optimal...

The decarbonization of economies around the world is crucial for reducing the impact of human-induced climate change. Many proposed means to achieve this decarbonization like the electrification of various sectors or the introduction of ‘new’ forms of energy such as hydrogen and carbon capture and storage require existing energy infrastructures...

To provoke the needed energy transition, European Union (EU) countries initiated significant offshore wind energy investments in the North Sea. However, there also exist adverse aspects to the use of higher renewable electricity levels:<br/><br/>• renewable energy sources, such as offshore wind energy, may threaten the security of our energy...

This study researched the optimal network of hydrogen refueling stations. The network is designed on a European scale and with a focus on heavy duty trucks. The design is created by means of a two-step optimization. The first step clusters truck representing datapoints into a predetermined number of stations by means of k-means clustering. The...

Societal concern is growing regarding the effect fossil energy use has on our planet and societies. Many promising sustainable energy solutions, like hydrogen, carbon capture and storage, and district heating, require long-distance distribution and transmission through networked infrastructure. Often, existing infrastructure can be repurposed to...

The large-scale integration of variable renewable energy sources (VRES) brings about challenges related to the stochastic characteristics in supply. In this light, a recent and promising approach which has received increasing attention is that of multi-energy systems (MES). A MES is defined as an energy system whereby different energy sectors...

In the Dutch climate agreement, the Klimaatakkoord, the Dutch government has set an ambition to produce 70 PJ worth of green gas in the country by 2030. This ambition has been set to reduce the carbon emissions from the use of natural gas, as green gas is a low carbon alternative. Green gas is produced by anaerobically digesting biomass - i.e....

Industrial clusters are facing major challenges in transitioning away from their carbon-intensive activities in order to accelerate the energy transition away from fossil fuels. Therefore, the industrial clusters; the Port of Rotterdam, Chemelot, North-RhineWestphalia (NRW) and Transition System Operator (TSO) GasUnie are planning to develop a...

The Indonesian government has set a target to increase new and renewable energy sources in the energy mix by 23% in 2030 and 31% in 2050, which are to be met by investing in hydropower and geothermal energy capacity mainly. However, Indonesia has abundant other renewable energy potentials, which are largely untapped. The Java-Madura-Bali (Jamali...

With the penetration of distributed energy resources, peer-to-peer (P2P) energy trading is becoming a promising way to harmonize the decarbonization and decentralization transformations in the energy sector. P2P markets give peers the autonomy to make individual decisions and cooperative behaviors between the peers may emerge. However, existing...

As global climate change concerns intensify, the European Union aims towards the decarbonization of its Member States. Over the last decade, hydrogen has received increasing attention as a vital element to achieve this decarbonization. However, the diffusion of hydrogen in the European Union is critically dependent on the emergence of a pipeline...

This research evaluates and optimises the competitiveness of a combined wind, solar, and electrolyser plant in the Dutch electricity and hydrogen market. For the electricity market, this study used the EPEX spot market, where most electricity is traded. The hydrogen market is far less transparent than the electricity market; hence, a market had...

To meet the goal of the European Union of becoming climate neutral in 2050, the Netherlands and North West Europe will integrate more and more variable renewable energy sources (VRE) into their power system. The uncertain weather conditions on which the VRE are dependent, will increase the need for a more flexible power system. An important...

Energy transition goals to reduce carbon emissions are a driver key for an increase share of variable renewable energy sources (vRES). To achieve 49% of CO2 reduction by 2030 compared to 1990, the Netherlands set a plan to generate 84 TWh of electricity from renewable energy sources, where 35 TWh need to be generated exclusively from onshore...
