The highly fuel-inefficient aircraft taxi-phase causes the industry to consider alternative ground propulsion systems. External systems like the Taxibot are preferred over onboard systems as they do not require aircraft structural additions and recertifications. However, the operational implementation of external taxi-systems is expected to...

The residential built environment in the Netherlands is on the verge of a transition of its thermal system. The Climate Agreement has suggested that municipalities will have to play a leading role in transitioning their neighborhoods' currently natural gas-driven heating systems towards sustainable alternatives. But changing the thermal systems...

Wildlife conservation efforts are constrained by a limited amount of resources available for surveillance activities. UAVs are used increasingly to assist rangers in patrol tasks. Effectively patrolling wildlife parks requires detailed knowledge of the environment and its threats, which is not always available. Previous work in Green Security...

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...

E-commerce has grown rapidly worldwide over the past decade and thus more parcels are shipped into urban areas. The last mile delivery of these parcels into an urban area create big problems such as congestion and pollution. In order to tackle these problems new solutions have been found by either changing the operations of the system or using...

EPA: Multi-Modelling for Complex Challenges With the acknowledgement of international grand challenges, the demand for better and ever more complex models is likely to increase a manifold. Where single models may no longer be able to grasp the complexities of a system, multi-modelling (Nikolic, Warnier, et al., 2019;...

Socio-technical systems consist of deeply interconnected and interdependent social entities and technical systems that collaborate to achieve a global goal. The individual characteristics and behaviours of each involved actor and their interactions define the resulting overall emergent system behaviour. Due to increased complexities in socio...

The increase in consumption of resources has led to more waste being generated, which then needs to be managed at the end of their life-cycle as waste. Current practices of waste management are not efficient as they lead to a release of emissions and a loss of value that is present in the resource, which is discarded as waste. New legislation...

Migrants are moving in great numbers towards urban areas as a result of urbanization and drivers such as political-, economical- and climate crises. The influx of new people brings new challenges for cities and municipalities to provide for a suitable environment for new and existing citizens whilst preventing adverse effects to occur. Current...

Urban areas are seeing influx of population and therefore are experiencing increasing stress on the systems currently in place. In traffic networks, a larger population means that their are inevitably a short term increase in mobility demands. To accommodate this, governments and and the private sector are proposing new solutions for mobility....

Access to clean energy has long been neglected within the humanitarian agenda. As a result, refugees are often locked into unsustainable and risky energy practices, especially in low-income countries. This study focuses on market-based interventions to deliver clean cooking fuels in refugee camps in protracted crises. The outcomes of market...

Cities are getting more congested and polluted as they grow; transportation is one of the contributors to this. Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) could revolutionise the transportation sector for people. In MaaS, the car-sharing schemes will play a vital role and can help in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, in the long-term, these...

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...

The size of container ships is constantly growing over recent decades due to a continuous search for economies of scale by shipping lines. The growth of the container ships has necessitated ports to adapt, e.g. by increasing the water depth requirements. Many of the conventional onshore ports cannot receive larger ships without dredging...
