Within several testing grounds in The Netherlands, Decentralized System Operators (DSOs) test a variety of smart grid solutions in order to anticipate on expected peak load increase; Most future energy system scenarios point out issues related to the functioning of the grid. Examples are blackout risks and large voltage fluctuations, which occur...

Our world is faced with a major challenge: anthropogenic climate change. This is a result of our continued use of fossil fuels, causing the emission of greenhouse gasses into our atmosphere, thereby adding to global warming. An important part of these decarbonisation strategies is the production of electricity from renewable energy sources and...

With an expected growth of renewable energy sources, the amount of variable andweather-dependent energy input to the electricity system increases. This is a growing source of deviations between day-ahead forecasts and the realisation on time of delivery. On the other hand, new sources of flexibility (demand response, storage, EV, wind...

Until recently the European electricity system has been operating as a set of isolated national markets with divergent regulatory norms. Today, the day-ahead markets between South-Western Europe and North-Western Europe are fully coupled, enabling the trading of electricity all the way from Portugal to Finland. Moreover, policy-makers in the...

The incumbent (chemical) plant engineering industry is under pressure for two reasons. At first, the rising internationalization of the economy results in low-cost competitors putting pressure on prices and lead times of projects. Secondly, the decreasing oil prices result in major investment cuts in the oil & gas and chemical industry. As a...

Sustainability has gained considerable interest at all levels in society during the last decades. Climate change has been a large contributor to this mentality change. As current energy systems are inefficient and contribute to climate change, a transition towards more efficient energy systems is sought. The share of local produced energy in the...

Mavroeidis, N. (author)
The electricity transmission system, lynchpin of the power system chain, has been recognized to play a significant role in fulfilling policy targets such as high integration levels of renewable energy sources, reduction of CO2 emissions, lower electricity costs and increased security of supply. In the European context, cross-border transmission...

Much attention is directed towards how to rapidly decarbonise the energy system. Unlike the present energy system based on fossil fuels, an energy system based on renewable energy sources with hydrogen and electricity as energy carriers would be sustainable in terms of CO2 emissions. Whereas in certain sectors (e.g. transport) the opportunities...

Bachelorthesis waar de maatschappelijke acceptatie van de energie opslagtechniek compressed air energy storage (CAES) is onderzocht met behulp van Structural Equation Modeling. CAES kan als opslagtechniek bijdragen aan het verhelpen van de variabiliteit en onvoorspelbaarheid van een duurzame energievoorziening. Bij CAES wordt elektriciteit in de...

In the Netherlands the Socio-Economic Council (SER) has signed an Energy Agreement where Dutch parties have laid out a basis for a broadly supported, robust and future proof energy and climate policy. In the joint vision on the future energy mix, LNG and bio LNG are being referred to as important opportunities for the Dutch economy to sustain...

In today’s information driven-economy, the key for manufacturing organizations like HEINEKEN Brewery Zoeterwoude to become and remain competitive lies in their capacity to acquire sound, relevant and timely information, as well as in ability to learn from the acquired information. The latter is believed to be linked to the extent in which the...

Meerkerk, J.J. (author)
The electrical peak demand in the Netherlands is likely to increase due to renewable energy technologies, and create a higher load demand for distribution transformers. Two technologies that increase the peak demand are solar-PV and heat pumps, for which the deployment on the distribution grid differs largely between geographical areas. In this...

The Car Park Power Plant (CPPP) concept is in its essence a parking garage in which parked fuel cell vehicles are used for the generation of electricity. By including on-site hydrogen production methods, the CPPPs could purchase electricity when it is cheap, store it, and convert it back to electricity when the electricity price is high. System...

Greeven, S.T. (author)
This research has been aimed at identifying internally consistent and plausible narratives on the pathways of society’s response to climate change. In this research, society’s response to climate change has been interpreted as the emergence of climate change mitigation action by society. Studying society’s response to climate change is hampered...

Policy alignment is a well-known problem when stimulating innovative energy technologies. In this paper policy alignment is approached from a technology perspective. Using a technology classification, based on morphological analysis and design theory, projects are classified looking at the technological function and physical artifacts. The...

In the winter of 2013-2014 the south of the UK (London, Oxford) experienced the heaviest rainfall since 1767. Evidence linking these kind of flood events to climate change has put pressure on the UK flood insurance system that is incapable of properly dealing with this kind of flood events. A proposed re-insurance system, FloodRe, is suggested...
