Since 2008 humanity is officially and urbanized species. Homo Urbanus consumes 75% of energy in buildings and transportation [Battle 2006]. Thus, the key to finding solutions to the effects of climate change is to be found in urban areas. This article focuses on the aerotropolis with at their core the airport. It explores how these regions can...

Scarcity of resources and environmental issues caused by human activities stimulate designers and policy makers to search for energy efficient strategies for sustainable development. A considerable amount of energy consumption and CO2 emission comes from the building sector which today accounts for 40% of the world’s energy use. Greenery systems...

The existing building stock has been in the focus of European Union policies for energy savings. Nevertheless, energy certification schemes refer mostly to operational energy and usually do not consider aspects related to the life cycle of the building. To look at the overall energy cost during the lifespan of a building, the energy used to...

Metropolitan airports are focal points of large amounts of essential resource flows, such as energy, materials, water and food. These flows are predominantly linear, whilst externalising both the negative and positive impacts associated with them. Moreover, qualitative and quantitative understanding regarding the throughput of these flows is...

City regions and metropolitan areas form the scale on which the battle for will be won or lost, and the level at which cities can become resilient and even self-sufficient. A master plan for a sustainable energy system for city regions is not a luxury anymore. An energy master plan will be based on incremental steps of transition. The approach...

Due to the ever growing trend of urbanization and population growth, the construction of high-rise buildings is inevitable and will also continue at an ever increasing pace. However, typical high-rise buildings (the traditional template of a rectilinear, air-conditioned box) are not energy efficient in many aspects of their design. In this...

Grote internationale luchthavens vormen nog geen duurzaam onderdeel van de stedelijke gebieden waarin ze zich bevinden. Dat komt vooral omdat luchthavens afhankelijk zijn van externe aan- en afvoer. Dit zijn vaak lineaire stromen in plaats van duurzame cycli. Het project Better Airport Regions (BAR) richt zich op een beter begrip van de relaties...

Cities need to become independent from finite resources, among which fossil fuels. There is great potential to save energy is many cities, however the generation of power is insufficient due to the limited space as a result of urban densities. An energy source less commonly explored is reuse of waste heat from various urban functions. In that...

Various sources indicate that threats to modern cities lie in the availability of essential streams, among which energy. Most cities are strongly reliant on fossil fuels; not one case of a fully self-sufficient city is known. Engineering resilience is the rate at which a system returns to a single steady or cyclic state following a perturbation....

De leerstoel Climate Design & Sustainability van de faculteit bouwkunde aan de TU Delft heeft een energiepotentiestudie uitgevoerd voor het door kassen gedomineerde gebied Oostland, bestaande uit de gezamenlijke gemeenten Pijnacker-Nootdorp en Lansingerland. De studie is geïnitieerd door lokale vooruitstrevende ondernemers. Onder anderen de...

The progress of sustainability within higher education has steadily increased in focus over the last decade and has increasingly become a topic of academic research. With various scholars, journals and conferences exclusively dealing with the subject, a wealth of literature has been produced on best practices, suggestions, and assessments...

It is difficult to fully satisfy the energy demand of today’s society with renewables. Nevertheless, most of the energy we use is lost as non-functional waste energy, whereas a large part of the built environment’s energy demand is only for low-quality energy, so the initial demand for primary, high-quality energy can be reduced by more...

Recently, the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) theory set ground in the Netherlands, propounding that environmental impact reduction can provide a positive economical impulse to stakeholders. The building industry has warmly received this approach and considers it to be a solution to the above-mentioned burden. However, if the building sector wants to...

De komende jaren is een transitie nodig van eindige fossiele naar oneindige duurzame energiebronnen. Dit kan niet zondermeer in het huidige systeem en vraagt om een aanpassing van ruimtelijke planning. Duurzame energiebronnen komen in verschillende kwaliteiten voor en zijn meer gebonden aan hun locatie. Daarom is het voor een duurzame...
