There is a pressing need for sustainable energy solutions in refugee camps. Community solar mini-grids, with their costs, reliability, and ease of installation can meet this energy need and contribute to the development and empowerment of camp residents. This research aims to answer the question of "To what extent can community-based governance...

Abstract The technical and geographical characteristics of fossil fuels have shaped interstate energy relations for decades. The ongoing energy transition leads to an increasing share of renewables in the electricity mix. Since technical and geographical characteristics of renewables differ significantly from those of fossil fuels, it is likely...

With increased awareness of anthropogenic emissions, industries and sectors worldwide are changing rapidly. One of those sectors is the transport sector which has seen immense change with the increase of electric vehicles in recent years. Although these electric vehicles reduce emissions and are a welcoming sign of change, they greatly increase...

District heating is gaining popularity and can serve as an alternative for the use of natural gas to provide heat to residential areas. District heating systems can make use of heat sources that are often locally distracted and would have otherwise been wasted. Data centers could act as low temperature heat sources by recovering residual heat...

Cities are on the rise: Recent years, cities have faced an increase in economic growth, employment rates and population numbers. As a result, the accessibility and liveability of cities is under pressure, mainly due to an increase in the number of cars. One of the possibilities to cope with this problem is to free existing cities from cars,...

Power-to-methanol (PtM) technologies have a potential to store excess renewable energy in methanol molecules. However, there is a lack of understanding about the role of these technologies in the course of energy transition. In this research, the influence of PtM technologies on power grid’s reliability and CO2 reduction are studied. An agent...

This research has the goal to analyse the influence of neighbourhood characteristics on people’s willingness to adopt Mobility as a Service (MaaS) instead of the car for new residential areas. It estimated the influence of a reduced parking comfort, MaaS-hub availability and aditional quality of the overall neighbourhood on the willingness to...

Signalized urban intersections are bottlenecks for traffic and cause congestion. To improve traffic signal plans, research efforts have been made to create self-adaptive traffic controllers, i.e. controllers which adapt in real-time to the current traffic demand based on connected vehicle data. Past research on self-adaptive controllers has...

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...
