In order to decarbonize the electricity grid, renewable energy sources must be utilised in con- junction with energy storage to provide ancillary services, which maintain electricity supply quality, reliability and restorability, whilst remaining aordable. Due to a lack of knowledge about the potential of stacking UK ancillary services and...

The integration of Variable Renewable Energy Sources (VRES) creates challenges for meeting load demand. The lack of on-demand power generation of these VRES effectively threatens energy security. Therefore, storage facilities, especially hydrogen, have been broadly researched for potential implementation in our energy system, enabling on-demand...

An idea was proposed to allow an autonomous drone to have indefinite flight times over the ocean by applying renewable energy technologies and theory to generate electricity in flight. This is considered less as a way to save energy, but to permit the use of such a drone from a ship not capable of safely retrieving it. One novel component of...

For the far majority of current photovoltaic devices, photons with an energy below 1.1eV are not utilized. Adding a Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) processed germanium bottom cell to a multi-junction device has the potential to provide a low-cost boost in conversion efficiency by utilizing a part of this spectral range below 1...

As the efficiency of silicon (Si) photovoltaic (PV) moves ever closer to the theoretical limit, 2-junction PV becomes increasingly interesting. Since PV cells are tested under standard test conditions (STC), but real world working conditions differ, it is interesting to see how 2-junction PV performs worldwide in different climates. Worldwide...

The Sines H2 Hub aims to take advantage of Portugal’s solar resources and push for a green hydrogen hub centred in Sines. To do so, a 1GW electrolyser is expected to be built by 2030. The gas produced, which will have the same production profile as the solar irradiance, can be injected in the gas grid, distributed by truck or shipped to the...

YUS SANTANA, Monica (author)
At present, the energy transition is increasingly being driven by the integration of renewable energy into the grid. However, this weather-dependent energy generation imposes challenges to the system operators since the deviations between the forecasted and the actual generation keep increasing due to this intermittent generation. Moreover, new...

Rising carbon dioxide concentrations in the air increase the global temperature since the industrial revolution. Today, there exists a great need to limit global warming, and an energy transition is vital to do so. With the upcoming changes in our energy system, bioenergy is widely discussed, resulting in a heated debate on including or...

Rising global temperatures have shifted mankind’s methods of energy production towards a more sustainable manner. Solar energy technologies have become one of the world’s leading methods of producing clean, sustainable energy. However, this technology has been facing some adversities in the field of thermal management. The majority of solar...

Solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies offer a renewable alternative to power generation that is based on fossil fuels; however, to meet the rising demand in electricity a substantial amount of surface area is required. This will inevitably lead to the installment of these systems on agricultural land, subsequently intensifying the land-use...

Problem Statement<br/>Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago nation, with 270 million people inhabiting 6,000 islands that span almost 2000 square kilometers (World Population Review, 2020). With 80% of its industries and 60% of its population located in coastal regions, Indonesia is particularly vulnerable to rising sea- levels and...

Electricity generation in a Direct Carbon Fuel Cell has thermodynamic advantages over conventional methods, because the DCFC is not limited by the Carnot efficiency. This thesis analyzes and models a DCFC where the electrochemical oxidation of carbon to carbon monoxide is taken into account, which is an endothermic reaction. The heat necessary...

Biogas is a sustainable and circular technology with a large potential to positively impact developing nations such as Ethiopia. However, international endeavors that initiate or install such technologies in developing nations often fade over time or even fail. This thesis evaluates what the common barriers and drivers of entrepreneurs of such...

Wind turbines installed in a wind farm are typically subject to increased turbulence because they are in the wake of upstream wind turbines that generate additional turbulence. Accurate prediction of turbulence in wind farms is critical as it is proportional to wind turbine fatigue loads, power losses and prediction of wind farm lifetime. IEC...

In the current world, fossil fuels and non-renewable energy sources are being phased out and renewable energies are taking their place. Electrical energy from these renewable energies are more difficult to store than fossil fuels. Transportation and feedstock for industries can also not always be supplied through electricity. Here, hydrogen has...

The development of a wind farm is a highly sophisticated task, whereby many stakeholders are involved and several unique disciplines come together to form a whole. Commonly, the unique disciplines are optimized individually which leads to sub-optimal windfarm designs. Therefore, it is of great importance that an interdisciplinary approach is...

Residential PV energy is already evolving to a major factor in the energy transition. However, conventional solar home systems pose various disadvantages concerning modularity, flexibility and ease of installation. The Photovoltaic Battery Integrated Module (PBIM) is an alternative approach towards integrating all the components of a solar home...

Ammonia is an important chemical used in the production of fertilizers and has the potential to become a green energy carrier. It is synthesized through the Haber-Bosch (HB) process, which involves nitrogen and hydrogen reacting at high temperature and pressure and consumes approximately 2% of the global energy supply. An alternative to this...
