With the fast-growing electricity demand, challenges arise affecting the reliability and the quality of the distribution network. The Dutch DSOs could expand the network capacity, but it is not sure if the network can be expanded fast enough. Network expansion will result in higher total consumer costs and if the network expansion rate is too...

The manufacturing processes of the Dutch ceramic plants are energy intensive with high temperatures. Most heat is generated by firing natural gas, which causes CO2 emissions. According to the Dutch Climate Agreement, the ceramic plants need to abate their CO2 emissions by 2030. This study intends to provide an analysis of applicable...

To meet the goal of the European Union of becoming climate neutral in 2050, the Netherlands and North West Europe will integrate more and more variable renewable energy sources (VRE) into their power system. The uncertain weather conditions on which the VRE are dependent, will increase the need for a more flexible power system. An important...

To date, the field of research on hydrogen pipeline network integration is majorly limited to techno-economic supply chain optimizations and to socio-technical analyses on just the hydrogen transition in general. This article addresses this restricted view by exploring development of the pipeline network as part of the hydrogen value chain from...

The built environment needs to become completely sustainable before 2050. Hydrogen is seen as a suitable resource to help in achieving this goal. In a hydrogen system, the predefined high level of reliability, as stands today, affects the affordability of the system. The households are the users and payers of the system. The method used is...

The digital world allows for increased levels of innovative activity as well as cooperation, through the increased networking it provides. Innovations have often been the subject of academic literature, where scholars attempt to identify the success and failure factors of innovative endeavors. A review of the contemporary literature has...

In 2018 the Dutch national government announced its decision to end natural gas extraction. This decision poses a challenge for local governments (municipalities) which have to organize a heat supply that is natural gas-free. Energy models can decrease the complexity of this challenge, but some challenges hinder the effective use of energy...

The current production of geothermal heat is not yet considered completely sustainable, since CO2 is emitted. The majority of the emissions from geothermal energy are related to formation gas, for the majority consisting of CO2 and methane (CH4). The amount of (resulting) CO2 emissions due to formation gas is determined by the composition and...

The global battle to reduce greenhouse gases changes many aspects of how we should think of our energy resources. For a large part, the industry is responsible for worldwide energy consumption. In the Netherlands, this share amounts to 41% of total energy production (Compendium voor de Leefomgeving, 2019). The industry is looking into different...

By analysing existing agent-based model (ABM) charging behaviour formalisations, this study evaluates the impact of a new static band-width network tariff structure on charging demand. Additionally, this approach enables a comparative study to reflect upon the susceptibility and value of the ABM method. Based on the simulation results, this...

The energy transition ignites change and fuels modifications in numerous aspects of the society, specifically in the oil and gas industry. Besides, it creates a dynamic environment, an uncertain policy, and an economic environment for international oil companies (IOCs), affecting their business strategies. However, only a few studies focused on...

Renewable energy sources like wind and solar, are intermittent, which means demand will not always match supply causing volatile and sometimes even negative electricity prices. For power companies it will be valuable to invest in technologies that can respond to those prices, which will result in an increasing flexibility of demand. However, to...

Hoogerbrugge, Coen (author)
One of the tools that is being equipped in the fight against global warming is greenhouse gas accounting. This thesis studies what factors standard setters can use to influence the probability of widespread adoption for a newly proposed standardized measurement and calculation methodology for corporate greenhouse gas inventories. A theoretical...

For decades researchers deliberated and continue to debate on how to support and assist humans in decision-making. This resulted in the development of Intelligent Decisions Support Systems (IDSSs). An IDSS is an application of artificial intelligence (AI) that desires to enhance and support decision making by enabling tasks to be performed by a...

Hydrogen is considered to be a promising replacement of fossil fuel-based energy for the future energy supply. The possibilities to use hydrogen are extensive; hydrogen can provide high temperatures for industrial processes, produce electricity, heat buildings and be a fuel for the mobility sector without releasing carbon. In order to implement...
