The European Union aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% to 95% below 1990 levels by 2050. For the Netherlands, a reduction of 80% implies that a limited amount of 30 Mton CO2 per annum may be emitted in 2050. Such a reduction could especially affect the Dutch refining industry as it is a large emitter of CO2 with a total of 11 Mton of...

Car as Power Plant (CaPP) neighborhoods are an innovative approach to achieve sustainable, self-sufficient local energy systems. A key component of CaPP systems is a fleet of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), which provides mobility but also operates as decentralized power plants. The CaPP approach still requires proof of concept, this is...

The district heating system is currently a natural monopoly. Introducing multiple producers on district heating networks could have many benefits. By developing a conceptual model that captures the technical, economic and institutional layers of the district heating system, a solid basis for a simulation model can be made. The proposed agent...

Rapid Urbanization has been the recent trends observed across all the countries of the globe. With the rising levels of global population, the global consumption and hence the rate of waste generation has also simultaneously increased. Hence, one of the key roles of the local municipalities is to decide, develop and maintain a waste management...

Energy network infrastructures form an integral part of continuous, stable and uninterrupted energy supply and transmission. These structures are complex and mostly consist of wired or pipeline networks. Some examples of these networked infrastructures can be oil and natural gas lines, electricity (grids), heat pipelines, biogas and green gas...

Recent developments in the demand response (DR) arena (PowerMatcher platform, Google’s NEST device, FAN communication standard, ENDAX platform etc.) indicate that the world is not becoming simpler. A complex set of interactions and mixtures at different levels of demand response aggregation can be expected in the near future. Given the goal of ...

Networked infrastructures such as gas and water pipelines, roads, railroads or power grids provide essential utilities and services to society. Common characteristics of such infrastructures include high capital costs, generally long lifetimes and irreversibility once the construction of such networks have finished. In the design of these...

The call for lower CO2 emissions has increased the integration of renewable energy sources in the electricity system. However, these intermittent sources do not follow the cycles of demand and are unpredictable in their nature. As the electrical system needs to constantly balance supply and demand, these renewable sources cause problems in the...

In the upcoming years, electricity markets in Europe face numerous challenges both on production and demand side. Due to decreasing investment costs for renewable energy sources (RES) and continuing government support for a transition towards green energy technologies, the market share of uncertain and volatile generation capacity will grow....

Climate change is an inevitable undesired phenomenon affecting the water cycle system. High uncertainties exist in the magnitude, speed, and impacts of the adverse consequences of climate change. In the decision-making processes of Water Companies, dealing with uncertainties such as climate change is part of asset management practices. In...

Dutch gas infrastructures are aged and need to be replaced in the next decades. Uncertainties surrounding the gas sector make it difficult to determine future requirements of the gas infrastructure. A decision model that analyses the performance of different replacement strategies under different scenarios of demand and supply is constructed....

Upstream oil companies in the Middle East are more frequently confronted with decisions on continuing the oil production of mature oil fields. The low production rates of mature fields generate low revenues. Considerable investments are often needed to continue with the production of oil at a mature field until the field is depleted because the...

There is increasing concern that energy-only markets are inadequate when it comes to ensuring generation adequacy in the power sector over the long term. This is reflected in the fact that several Independent System Operators have commissioned studies about security of supply over the last few years; OFGEM and CEER (Council of European Energy...

Climate change, population growth and increasing consumption patterns of water and increasing urbanisation are challenges and future uncertainties that place stress upon urban water infrastructures. These urban challenges, along with the complexities of asset-intensive systems and socio-economic structures, make the development of efficient long...

The electric power network has to be able to cope with extensive changes in the near future, like distributed generation (DG) and electricity produced from renewable energy sources (RES). The conventional technologies, which are used in the electric power network of the Netherlands, are not sufficient to cope with these changes. This research...
