The Industrial Ecology Data Commons (IEDC) is a relational database designed as an open “platform to exchange industrial ecology datasets” (Pauliuk et al., forthcoming). It is positioned as an implementation of the ‘general data model (GDM) for socioeconomic metabolism’, which the authors state “can be used to structure all data that can be...

Cities account for approximately 75% of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. This, along with the fact that cities also account for 75% of natural resource consumption and 50% of global waste production, makes urbanization a world-wide issue (Sukhdev, Vol, Brandt, & Yeoman, 2017). Additionally, the widely-practiced urban linear economic structure...

Cobalt is one of the most important critical raw materials for emerging technologies. There are many incentives for analysis of this metal, from increasing demand for rechargeable batteries, rising prices and social issues involved. This paper is the first attempt to perform a substance flow analysis of cobalt at a city level. The analysis...

Since the Netherlands possesses the largest natural gas reserve in Western Europe, most households depend on this resource for their heat provision. Of the total consumption of natural gas, 51% is used for heat provision to households. Both social problems with earthquakes related to natural gas exploitation and environmental problems with...

The heating transition goals of the Netherlands are ambitious. To reach the goal of an 80% reduction of CO2 emission by 2050, the total residential heat consumption would need to be drastically cut down. The Dutch government is leaning towards implementing large-scale heating networks and reusing waste heat from non-renewable industry. However,...

In order to mitigate climate change, the energy system will have to change dramatically. Energy production has historically been a centralized process without citizen participation. Recently, the energy production system is becoming increasingly decentralized. However, a polycentric energy production system requires active citizen involvement....

de Haes, Sabine (author)
Large material flows are extracted from natural mines in the earth’s crust and moved and stored in anthropogenic environments. Extraction processes from natural mines are often harmful for the environment and can cause material scarcity. At the same time governments are formulating ambitions to increase circularity in cities. For these reasons...

Coherent responses to wicked problems such as climate change require a new way of doing science and tools to give insight into the transformation of large-scale socio-technical systems. Simulation models support transformative processes by offering a simplified version of reality and a boundary object that unites stakeholders around a simplified...

To limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius in 2100, the European power sector needs to transform. Renewable energy capacity is required to reach this ambition, together with transmission and storage capacity to maintain grid stability. Carbon capture and storage could potentially decrease the required renewable energy capacity, while...
