Climate change without adequate countermeasures has become one of humanity's greatest threat. Energy production by means of renewable energy sources is therefore one of the crucial measures that will play a paramount role in reducing the pollutant emissions of fossil fuel dependency. Small islands in particular are an exemplary case of the...

HVDC innovations and the integration of power markets and renewables drive the development of a European Northern Seas offshore grid. This power transmission system performs two functions: interconnecting Northern European onshore power systems, and connecting offshore wind farms. Despite its benefits, the development of an integrated...

The integration of large amounts of variable renewable energy poses fundamental challenges to the operation and governance of the energy system. In this article we address the main institutional challenges that are caused by the integration of variable renewable energy sources like solar and wind energy in the European power system. We first...

Many road widening projects are only profitable when there is a high growth in traffic intensity in the future which is uncertain. Therefore, it could be beneficial to apply real option analysis in which the costs and benefits of flexible alternatives, e.g. in delay and phasing, can be assessed. Real option analysis is not often applied in...

Within the context of growing concerns about oil supply security and greenhouse gas emissions, both the aviation and petrochemical sector are exploring alternative feedstocks for the production of jet fuel and chemicals, respectively. In that light, research into bio-based jet fuels (biojet fuel) and bio-based chemicals has been accelerating in...

Integrated community energy systems (ICESs) are emerging as a modern development to re-organize local energy systems allowing simultaneous integration of distributed energy resources (DERs) and engagement of local communities. Although local energy initiatives, such as ICESs are rapidly emerging due to community objectives, such as cost and...

Airline Industry has seen constant growth in the passenger aviation sector over the years. The profits though, have not risen much because the competition has stiffened and fluctuating oil prices have been a cause of concern as well. Price wars have been a short-term strategy for the airlines to gain a bigger market share and retain customers....

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...

Transparency, privacy, and information quality assurance are profound issues that often emerge due to the publication or use of open data. Realizing the three values are important, and the design of open government data portals should be able to accommodate the values. However, how the open data portals should be designed in order to accommodate...

A combination of two developments in personal mobility–vehicle automation and vehicle sharing–might become reality, but qualitative research into the potential impact of vehicle automation on vehicle sharing (and vice versa) is currently scarce. This thesis aims to fill this gap by exploring the potential impact through literature research and a...

Companies implement technical security measures to let their employees behave in a secure manner. Employees however, can circumvent these measures. To solve this circumventing problem companies should know better what the preferences of their employees are. Employees’ preferences with regards to technical security measures are based on the...

Within the Netherlands, house owners set up projects in which all houses within a neighbourhood are collectively renovated and equipped with distributed energy resources (DERs) at the same time. These projects are called ‘neighbourhood distributed energy resource projects’ (NDPs). As some of the equipped DERs electrify much of the heating...
