The Netherlands policy on electricity steers towards a carbon neutral power generation in 2050. Among<br/>the studies that focus on long term power system research, none use the starting point of a 100%<br/>renewable power system in 2050. It is unknown if such a system is technically feasible given the<br/>variability of wind and solar. The...

Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, currently faces a price of booming development: pollution from waste. For example, within the last 10 years, the amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) has tripled in the city, from roughly 800,000 tons/year in pre-2007 to 2,400,000 tons/year in 2010. As the result, this situation challenges the home city of 6...
