Although the Dutch energy supply is gradually progressing from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources, the consequences for the grid are becoming increasingly evident. Meanwhile, the gas extraction from the Groningen natural gas reserve is de- clining as the induced earthquakes in the northern Netherlands persist. Hydrogen, as a flexible...

This project investigates the feasibility of hydrogen refueling stations using photovoltaic systems for fuel cell scooters. The aim was to identify the solar electricity generation potential of noise barriers in the Netherlands and the connection between this and future theoretical hydrogen demand for fuel cell powered two wheelers (scooters or...

The Port of Rotterdam has the vision to become a zero-emission port in 2050. At the mo- ment, the port area emits about 18% of Dutch CO2 emissions. Various studies have been conducted on how to reach this vision. Among others, the Wuppertal Institute has investig- ated what set of technologies in each scenario would be desirable to employ....

In order to limit global warming to well below 2°C compared to pre-industrial temperatures, a lot still needs to happen. Carbon free hydrogen as an energy carrier can significantly reduce the CO<sub>2</sub> emissions of the entire energy system. In this report, a concept for a spatially efficient, initial hydrogen corridor in the European Union...

As an alternative energy carrier alongside electricity, hydrogen is considered one of the key factors in the impending required changes in the energy system transition. Due to the decrease in natural gas extraction in the Netherlands, the reuse of the natural gas network which eventually will become available for hydrogen transmission has...

Up until now, ammonia has primarily served the fertilizer and chemical industry with limited regards to carbon emissions. The hydrogen within the ammonia molecule is commonly produced using fossil fuels; this process accounts for 1,2 % of the global CO2 emissions. Rather than using fossils fuels, electrolysis with renewable energy could be used...

To comply with the 2020 targets for reducing greenhouse gas GHG emissions, the government of the Netherlands ordered to close the coal-fired power plant at Hemweg 8 by the end of the year 2019 and Vattenfall aims to utilise this valuable location in the harbour of Amsterdam for production of green hydrogen and other renewable alternatives. The...

In an effort to replace fossil fuels by more sustainable solutions, the demand for green hydrogen hasgrown significantly over the last few years. This has raised the interest in electrolysis and has boostedits development. Water electrolysis produces hydrogen and oxygen from water using direct current,nowadays often with an electrochemical...

Smart charging offers the potential for electric vehicles to use renewable energy more efficiently, lowering costs and improving the stability of the electricity grid. Many computer models have been developed to simulate the behavior of smart charging. Yet these models often assume that future information is known perfectly, including when...

Oprinsen, ludger (author)
Climate change, earthquakes in Groningen and the desire to become more energy independent in the future are all reasons for the Netherlands to strongly reduce the use of natural gas. To realize this ambitious goal the domestic environment will also have to stop using natural gas and start heating, cooking and using warm water sustainably. The...

A techno-economic scenario analysis is done for fully renewable energy and transport systems in two smart urban areas in Europe (Hamburg and Murcia). Both city areas are reliant on wind and solar electricity, and use Battery Electric Vehicle(s) (BEV) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle(s) (FCEV) as backup electricity plants. The energy systems...

Battery electric and fuel cell electric vehicles have the potential to cover the shortage in renewable power generation by engaging in vehicle-to-grid. However, the vehicle-to-grid service cannot completely make up for the intermittent nature of renewables. Deterministic models were used to compute the extent to which the vehicles can engage in...

Poorte, Michelle (author)
<br/>In the Netherlands the main sources of electricity are currently coal and gas fired power plants. Due to the increasing share of electricity that is produced from renewable energy sources, the operational hours of these conventional power plants are decreasing. However, these power plants are also the main source of frequency reserves,...

In a future scenario electric vehicles (EV) could be operated in Vehicle to Grid (V2G) mode to support the national and renewable energy electricity grid by providing ancillary services such as peak shaving and frequency regulation. While developing financial models to price these services it is important to include the impact of Vehicle to Grid...

reement, adopted by virtually all 195 countries of the United Nations, is a binding deal with targets to keep global warming of the earth beneath 2∘C, and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases in 2050 by at least 80% compared to 1990. These targets require significant reductions in energy consumption and switch to carbon free renewable energy...
