The concept of a hydrogen economy has gain renewed attention as a way to enable a cost-effective transition to a low-carbon society. The adoption of hydrogen as an energy carrier beyond its current non-energetic use is however faced with deep uncertainty, making decision-making on policy support difficult. The state-owned enterprise (SOE) is...

Waste-to-Energy (WtE) serves as an important source to meet the growing energy demands of the world in a sustainable manner. It can help in the reduction of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions, lower the risk of environmental pollution and contribute towards the establishment of a circular economy. By generating steam or electrical energy, WtE...

Pilots, or transition experiments, are widely regarded as a means to learn more about how to tackle societal challenges. This leads to a crucial role for double-loop learning, which involves modifying the existing norms, policies and objectives. Without double-loop learning, the transition experiments will be constrained in their influence....

Information systems (IS) in Dutch first-line healthcare are organized complex and inefficiently. This limits innovation and interoperability of IS in this domain. Innovation is considered useful to make first-line healthcare more efficient. Digital platform literature shows a how a digital platform provides a more flexible approach to IS and...

The use of machine learning systems has great potential to better predict probabilities of default for credit underwriting. Despite this advantage, herewith there exists the substantial risk of discrimination. Moreover, machine learning models with the highest prediction-accuracy are often the least explicable (i.e. explainable). Nonetheless,...

This research has compared three different market mechanisms in a quantitative way. The influences of these market mechanisms on the heating system were investigated for CO2 emissions, consumer price and producer surplus. In addition, the influences of investment decisions and price and consumption growth scenarios were tested. The research...

The Netherlands aims to reduce GHG emissions by 95% by 2050 compared to 1990. Hydrogen is seen as a potential energy carrier in the Netherlands by 2050. To what extent hydrogen will be implemented is unknown, because many applications are possible. Hydrogen shows potential for (1) carbon free feedstock for process industry, (2) carbon free...

The Dutch government has set the goal for the Dutch housing stock to be independent of gas by 2050. The funding for the needed energy efficiency retrofits is a bottleneck in the process. Owner occupiers within condominium associations come across many barriers in the application process for funding. One of which is the lack of a well suited...

As a move away from the natural gas based heating, the Dutch government identified district heating networks as most economical alternative to the natural gas. However, the future plans for the district heating sector have faced challenge on the question of the design of heat market and management of factors such as ownership, network access,...

Cycling as a way of commuting is becoming more attractive from the eyes of the public, employers, and policymakers. By offering the ability to go faster with less physical effort, electric bicycles (e-bikes) can motivate more people to cycle to work. While the numbers of e-bicycles sold in the Netherlands is increasing (BOVAG-RAI, 2017; Plazier,...

In order to determine how the energy sector of the Netherlands can or should look in the future, energy scenarios are used to explore possible alternative futures. Many scenarios for the Netherlands exist, but a classification of contemporary Dutch electricity scenarios is missing. Additionally, agent-based modelling (ABM) has often been...

Recent years the Netherlands have been shocked by a series of earthquakes. Normally an earthquake would be considered as a natural hazard, however extracting gas induces these earthquakes. Whenever a hazard is induced, it is perceived as man-made and therefore controllable. This leads to differences in risk acceptance in relation to natural...

The global population is ageing at a rapid pace, accordingly many countries implement ageing in place policies to prevent unmanageable growth of costs of institutionalised care settings. Like many other countries, the Dutch government also shifted towards ageing in place policies to reduce the costs of institutionalised care settings. Ageing in...
