Due to climate change, there is a push toward a reduction of greenhouse gasses. Through spatial planning, the province of South Holland plays a role in this process. However, this requires insights into relation between the energy system and the built environment that is currently lacking. This thesis shows how spatial clustering using the K...

Serious Games can be used for many purposes, including studying complex, socio-technical systems. They are claimed to provide new opportunities by bringing different knowledge and fields of expertise to the table. Combined with simulations that allow for observation of the evolving infrastructure under deeply uncertain conditions, they have the...

The energy transition is a pressing and widely debated topic in society and is creating global challenges. As the switch is made to sustainable energy carriers, more pressure is being put on to our electricity grids and the network operators managing them. They, however, face the uncertain future capacity needs of the grid and operate in a...

This research has illustrated the abilities of incorporating robust decision making within train maintenance. Both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance processes of the Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) have been examined, after which exploratory modeling and analysis enabled developing valuable insights for decision makers. Scenario analysis through...

The effect of using decision support systems in decision-making processes characterized by time pressure, uncertainty, and dynamism is still very limited and debated among researchers. By utilizing a case study that concerns the employment of a DSS to assist the procedures of intercepting fugitives undertaken by the Dutch National Police, this...

In order to reach the climate goals agreed on in Paris, immense CO2-reductions is necessary: 55% reduction in 2030 and 95% in 2050. 20% of the total CO2-emissions in the Netherlands comes from heating homes in the built environment. Therefore, it is essential to transition to a sustainable heating system in the built environment. According to...

The world is currently a rushed environment; things change faster than ever. Technological innovations impress us again every year. Many innovations that enhance society are the result of innovating organisations. These organisations invest in innovative solutions, for their own good, but eventually also for the greater good. Allocating...

To deal with increasing complexity and connectivity of socio-technical systems it becomes unlikely for individuals to be able to oversee all possible changes. These systems are riddled with a plurality of actors with differing interests, disciplines, institutions and ecological limitations. Examples of systems like these are energy and gas grids...

The residential built environment in the Netherlands is on the verge of a transition of its thermal system. The Climate Agreement has suggested that municipalities will have to play a leading role in transitioning their neighborhoods' currently natural gas-driven heating systems towards sustainable alternatives. But changing the thermal systems...

Migrants are moving in great numbers towards urban areas as a result of urbanization and drivers such as political-, economical- and climate crises. The influx of new people brings new challenges for cities and municipalities to provide for a suitable environment for new and existing citizens whilst preventing adverse effects to occur. Current...

The need for an energy transition has arisen in response to a growing discrepancy between (A) what people find important or valuable in life, and (B) the performance of – or value delivered by – the physical energy system. Since the physical energy system has not changed much in recent decades, it is clear that changes in people’s values are...

Humanitarian assistance is driven by data and information. Through the whole<br/>chain of actions – from early warning systems to evaluation – information<br/>determines priorities, resource allocation, and donors’ willingness to donate.<br/>However, the potential harm that comes with data is often overlooked. Inadequate<br/>data management...

This thesis focuses on the combination of agent based modelling and Bayesian network. These techniques are used to see if this is a viable way of modelling green markets, like the heat pump market. These markets can change quickly. The combination of the techniques gives the investors in the model the ability to learn from new information during...

The transition to a circular economy requires drastic changes to the economy. A tool for macro-economic analysis of structural changes in the economy, input-output analysis, lacks dynamic features. This thesis set out to integrate dynamic features representing demand change and technological change. A conceptual model is designed that integrates...

Coherent responses to wicked problems such as climate change require a new way of doing science and tools to give insight into the transformation of large-scale socio-technical systems. Simulation models support transformative processes by offering a simplified version of reality and a boundary object that unites stakeholders around a simplified...
