In October 2023 congestion is issued in the HIC Rotterdam. As a result businesses can no longer establish, expand or electrify. A potential solution to free up grid capacity is that of an energy hub. This study evaluates future scenarios for the development of an industrial energy hub by utilising the EMA method. A study is done on the details...

This research examines the resilience of the water sector after a societal collapse, defined by a significant loss of societal complexity. Through Exploratory Modeling and Analysis, this research evaluates how interconnected infrastructures respond to cascading failures caused by disruptions resulting from a societal collapse. The investigation...

As the world grapples with the escalating challenges of climate change, Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) emerges as a crucial solution, especially for decarbonizing dominant industries such as steel, cement, and petrochemicals. The Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) have highlighted the...

Yearly, 20.000 fatalities are recorded in road accidents on European roads alone. This situation is far more severe (1.3 million humans) when the global scope of road accidents is considered. Thus, Policymakers are initiating policy programs to overcome this challenge by enhancing safety and maximizing the associated positive economic impact....

Climate change will lead to more extreme climate and weather phenomena, and this includes the increased risk and severity of flooding. Flooding is one of the most destructive and common natural hazards globally, and rising sea levels and extreme precipitation mean that many human settlements will be situated in climate-sensitive areas. <br/><br/...

The use of Automated Decision Making (ADM) systems in the public sector will become increasingly prevalent in the future, making citizens increasingly likely to be confronted with decisions that have been made fully automatically, without human intervention. Ever more digitization increases the opaqueness of the social benefits system in the...

The Dutch government described its vision to achieve significant reductions in greenhouse emissions in the climate goals of 2030 and 2050. The energy infrastructure in the Netherlands will be a critical factor in achieving these goals. As an extension to the stated importance, understanding the current energy infrastructure is equally...

Over the past decade, renewable power generation through wind power has increased significantly. Especially the installation of offshore wind energy is expected to skyrocket to a total of 2000 GW by 2050. The majority of rights to develop and operate offshore wind farms are allocated through tendering procedures.<br/>In tender procedures,...

In light of worsening climate change and an increased interest in adapting infrastructure to cope with its effects, model-based decision support has become an essential tool for policy makers. In conditions of deep uncertainty, models may be used to explore a large space of possible system behaviours and so encourage a wider consideration of the...

van Deelen, Julie (author)
With the population growing and countries becoming more affluent, diets shift. These global dietary shifts contribute greatly to increasing greenhouse gas emissions because of their higher carbon and water intensities. This development is problematic considering both the growth in our global economy as well as our population. It is therefore...

Agent-based simulation models are rising in popularity recently due to their ability to model real-world problems in a wide range of domains. Inherent to these types of simulations is the fact that an enormous amount of data can be generated, which needs to be analysed in order to make the simulation useful. At the moment, the available tools to...

EPA: Multi-Modelling for Complex Challenges With the acknowledgement of international grand challenges, the demand for better and ever more complex models is likely to increase a manifold. Where single models may no longer be able to grasp the complexities of a system, multi-modelling (Nikolic, Warnier, et al., 2019;...

In the past few decades, we have witnessed unprecedented impacts of climate change. The increase in Green house gas emissions due to human activities has disastrous implications for earth including an increase in global mean temperatures, rise in sea level and melting of polar ice caps. Climate change has<br/>impacted all forms of human life on...

Our contemporary society consists of increasingly complex systems-of-systems in which technical and social subsystems influence each other. Multi-models reflect this complexity and are useful to analyse these complex socio-technical systems. They consist of connected simulation models which may each have their focus on a subsystem or modelling...

Policymakers who work in the public health sector may rely on the help of quantitative models to support their choice of control strategy against a particular infectious disease. While policymakers have a large number of decision support models to choose from, hardly any of these tools are used to design an intervention strategy that can work...

Increasing ship emissions are of big concern because they contribute to the effects of climate change and have an impact on the local and regional environment. Due to these concerns, stricter regulations are enforced upon the shipping sector by the International Maritime Organisation and the European Union. However, since new regulations are...
