Support schemes have been central to the expansion of renewable electricity globally and in the European Union. As technologies mature, individual member states may decide to phase out these policies. While previous research has shown that such policy changes affect investors’ decisions, we investigate how they affect pathways and electricity...

Natural gas for heating is widespread in the built environment of The Netherlands, where the government aims at limiting heat demand and reducing natural gas consumption over the coming decades. In the owner-occupied residential sector, this transition is complex and requires cooperation and coordination of individuals and groups that make...

The major international airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, is redesigning its security checkpoints for 2024, for which a novel type of security checkpoint configuration is considered. In this redesign, one seeks to find the optimal checkpoint configuration; however, this remains non-trivial. The checkpoint configuration problem requires a...

In this paper, we propose and analyze a q-learning-based approach for allocation of operators to security teams in order to improve operational efficiency of an airport security checkpoint. The research is composed of two parts. First, we develop an agent-based model capable of simulating an airport security checkpoint. Second, we introduce...

Research background<br/>Plastic debris in the environment consists primarily of plastic consumer waste. One of its leading causes is the lack of waste collection systems in developing countries. Actions need to be taken to overcome this issue, and Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) seems to be an effective solution for encountering plastic...

Accidents in buildings happen frequently and if people are not evacuated in time, this can have major consequences. The behaviour of building occupants is one of the most critical determinants herein. <br/>Evacuation behaviour consists of two phases: the response phase and the evacuation movement phase. During the response phase, a building...

Burns and other skin traumas occur at various intensities regarding the depth and area of the skin, as well as the involvement of the different skin layers. Worldwide, an estimated six million patients need hospitalisation for burns annually. Furthermore, most severe burn injuries will develop morbidity and unaesthetic scars like contractures...

Good supply strategy that can improve the logistical chain involves taking into account the complexity that a specific good is situated in. This research takes improving the bicycle supply chain within the Netherlands armed Forces as a use case. Aside from the goals for the use case of bicycles, the aim was also to fill the knowledge gap of...

The IPCC report of August 2021 calls for an immediately reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Without changing the world’s diets, even if we stop all fossil fuel emissions today, we would still not be able to maintain global warming below 1.5°C. The EU has set out their strategy for reducing agricultural emissions in the Farm to Fork Strategy,...

The European Green Deal states that the European Union will have to cut 55% of carbon-dioxide (CO2) levels and implement a share of at least 40% of renewable energy sources in the electricity sector by 2030, compared to levels of 1990. While renewable energy technologies are effective in cutting CO2 levels, they also bring challenges like...

The absence of medicines to cure COVID-19 calls for preventive strategies, including mask-wearing. Despite its protection against exposure to coronavirus, not everyone chooses to wear a mask. Some studies addressed mask-wearing behaviour from the standpoint of behavioural economics, one being the effect of herding behaviour. This occurs when...

A reliable, accessible, and affordable electricity provision is crucial for economic development in emerging markets. For some emerging countries, ill-advised policies, unfortunate market development, and a bad starting position together with the already complex nature of the electricity sector caused circular debt to accumulate. Circular debt...

Over the last decades, the world population has grown vastly and the percentage of people living in cities has increased. This process of urbanization has had a lot of implications for both safety management and research on evacuations. Due to this growth in urbanization, more high density gatherings are taking place, potentially resulting in...

The climate change around the globe driven by Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHG) is fueling the growth of Sustainable Energy Systems (SES) at a faster pace. However, the lack of acceptance of these systems by society has stifled its successful deployment. Societal values play a key role in evaluating the social acceptance and the broader...

The municipality of Amsterdam is currently in the middle of a heat transition. The municipalit aims to cut down the use of natural gas for space heating in order to reduce its impact on the natural environment. For the Geerdinkhof neighborhood in Amsterdam South-East, the municipality is planning to implement a district heating system. These...

The duration of protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide is still uncertain (Murray &amp; Piot, 2021). Therefore, a possible future scenario is that the entire population will need an extra dose of a vaccine. Yearly recurring flu vaccinations take place at general practices (GP), so this might also be the case for COVID-19 vaccinations. General...

With increasing urbanization it has become increasingly important to focus on reducing emissions at a residential level. Decisions of households to adopt emissions reducing technologies are influenced not just by economic factors, but by the type of social networks they are embedded in. There is however little insight into the relationship...

Agent-based simulation models are rising in popularity recently due to their ability to model real-world problems in a wide range of domains. Inherent to these types of simulations is the fact that an enormous amount of data can be generated, which needs to be analysed in order to make the simulation useful. At the moment, the available tools to...

Balancing and redispatch are essential services for the security and stability of the electricity network. Balancing refers to continuously maintaining a balance between supply and demand through activating flexible resources. Redispatch refers to changing the dispatch of generators to remedy network congestion. The need for flexibility...

One of the substantial causes for food insecurity in an area is drought. Drought is a very insidious disaster. Unlike rapid onset disasters, like an earthquake or flood, it increases its grasp over an area over time. The longer the drought lasts, the more an area is destroyed leaving devastating effects that can last many years. The impacts of...
