Since the outbreak of COVID-19, far-reaching measures were introduced to isolate people and reduce the chance of transmission among people. In the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh, the camps were locked down for months. As a result, economic dependencies between the refugees and host communities which were built in previous decades were cut...

The duration of protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide is still uncertain (Murray & Piot, 2021). Therefore, a possible future scenario is that the entire population will need an extra dose of a vaccine. Yearly recurring flu vaccinations take place at general practices (GP), so this might also be the case for COVID-19 vaccinations. General...

In the future, the energy supply will primarily consist of energy from renewables, which makes energy producers and grid operators fear that grid security and reliability could be threatened. On top of a more fluctuating supply, energy demand is also expected to increase in the coming years, especially if heating will be electrical when gas is...

The global battle to reduce greenhouse gases changes many aspects of how we should think of our energy resources. For a large part, the industry is responsible for worldwide energy consumption. In the Netherlands, this share amounts to 41% of total energy production (Compendium voor de Leefomgeving, 2019). The industry is looking into different...

Renewable energy sources like wind and solar, are intermittent, which means demand will not always match supply causing volatile and sometimes even negative electricity prices. For power companies it will be valuable to invest in technologies that can respond to those prices, which will result in an increasing flexibility of demand. However, to...

Hydrogen is considered to be a promising replacement of fossil fuel-based energy for the future energy supply. The possibilities to use hydrogen are extensive; hydrogen can provide high temperatures for industrial processes, produce electricity, heat buildings and be a fuel for the mobility sector without releasing carbon. In order to implement...

The Dutch Government is picking up the pace in the energy transition. However, the expansion of wind generation is facing congestion challenges, and the decarbonization of household heating and agricultural mobility proves that electrification is not always an option. These challenges occur together in rural areas like Oudeschip. <br/>Hydrogen...

The efficiency of a logistic service provider's network can be improved by implementing a receiver-led consolidation policy. This policy means that shipments destined to the same location are consolidated in one truck. The literature states that by doing this the costs, CO2 emissions and number of vehicle movements can be reduced. However,...

The security and reliability of the European power system network that is used to transmit electricity from producers to consumers is under increasing pressure. The penetration of renewable energy resources that have a variable and unpredictable energy output and the rising cost of the operation of fossil-based power generators are negatively...

Development Finance Institutions have been established to provide finance for long-term economic development in low and middle-income countries. However, these investments are exposed to climate-related risks. This means that Development Finance Institutions need to explore climate adaptation interventions, particularly in view of the fact that...

As the energy transition is expected to increase the number of imbalances in the following years, more flexibility is needed to mitigate these imbalances. Electric Vehicles (EV) can provide this flexibility by adjusting their charging speed. An aggregator can provide this flexibility of many EVs to the balancing markets. However, since EVs are...

Energy storage systems (ESS) are expected to be one of the main pillars for a future renewable based power system. Since all sectors are electrifying and variable renewable energy (VRE) is being deployed more quickly than transmission and distribution operators are able to connect them to the electricity grid. Flexible capacity on multiple...
