District heating leverages centralised, high efficiency combined heat and power (CHP) systems. It uses waste heat to lower energy consumption and reduce greenhouse emissions. The system also supports renewable energy sources like geothermal and biomass, providing a sustainable heating alternative.<br/><br/>This report examines a nonlinear...

The Dutch government's 2050 initiative to transition all buildings from natural gas to sustainable heat systems underscores the critical role of stakeholder alignment in energy transition projects. Despite its importance, existing literature lacks a comprehensive analysis of the mechanisms required for effective stakeholder collaboration in heat...

District heating systems are considered a feasible heating alternative to replace natural gas to mitigate emissions in cities. However, urban transitions are very complex because energy systems often operate in densely populated areas, which gives rise to all kinds of interdependencies in cities. These interdependencies can result in...

Buildings can deliver short-term thermal energy storage by utilising the thermal capacity of the building construction and/or by activating the water tanks included in the heating/cooling installation. The flexibility potential of demand management using decentralized thermal energy storage has been quantified in many theoretical modelling...

Ground source heat pumps (GSHP) coupled to shallow borehole heat exchangers (BHE) represent a low emission technology to provide space heating and cooling. However, ongoing long-term heating or cooling of the ground caused by unbalanced loads leads to a performance decline and in the worst case to a system shutdown. Enhanced regeneration can...

Wentges, Edzard (author)
By 2050, the Netherlands aims to achieve a climate-neutral society, however over 90% of buildings currently use natural gas or fossil fuel oil as their main resource of energy. To align with this goal, the Dutch energy company is taking measures to phase out natural gas and promote district heating. This research outlines a strategic path for...

van den Berg, Joost (author)
The Dutch government is committed to transitioning to a low-carbon economy. District heating networks are considered essential for achieving this transition. This research aims to compare two different methods of involving citizens in decision-making and development related to district heating networks. The novel Participatory Value Evaluation ...

Society is facing a huge challenge in switching the energy sectors dependence on fossil fuels into an energy sector using mostly renewable energy sources. The switch towards using more sustainable energy sources is known as the energy transition. The goal of the energy transition is to lower the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions emitted by the...

Kantawala, Naeem (author)
The Netherlands aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 49% before 2030, with the built environment contributing 15% of these emissions largely due to the heavy reliance on natural gas to meet space heating demands. To phase out natural gas, alternatives such as heat pumps and district heat networks are being considered. However, adapting...

van Burk, Sarah (author)
The Dutch government has set a goal to phase out the use of natural gas by 2050. As a result, municipalities are focusing on implementing alternative heating strategies in certain neighbourhoods. However, districts with older building stocks are often neglected, raising concerns that city centers with older, poorly insulated buildings and high...

This study presents an approach to determine the extent of renovation interventions required for existing Dutch dwellings aiming to transition to lower-temperature district heating (DH) systems. The proposed method is applied to a typical intermediate terraced house built before 1945 in the Netherlands, and it consists of two steps: first,...

Recovery of heat from electrolysers is potentially interesting to increase the total system efficiency, reduce CO<sub>2</sub> emissions, and increase the economic feasibility of both hydrogen and heat production. This study examines different designs for the utilisation of (waste) heat from a 2.5 MW<sub>el</sub> polymer electrolyte membrane ...

Pozzetto, Alessandro (author)
This thesis work investigates and provides an analysis of the potential benefits of an electricity - gas - heat integrated energy system, putting extra focus on the waste heat potential from fuel cells and electrolysers. The main focus is given to the low-voltage distribution grid level, and a case study is presented for the Drechtsteden...

Stoel, Fianne (author)
District heating systems (DHSs) have the potential to play a big part in the energy transition. The efficient operation of DHSs is therefore also an important subject of study. The operation of DHSs where combined heat and power (CHP) plants are used are particularly interesting, because CHPs can operate with high efficiency.<br/><br/>In this...

Janssen, Femke (author)
Energy demand for heating and cooling makes up 73\% of total energy use of buildings [2]. This figure is expected to increase over the coming decades, as demand for cooling energy may rise in the Netherlands due to climate change. The heating and cooling of buildings are at relatively low temperature compared to the industry and thus allowing...

de Bruin, Simone (author)
Urgent and significant changes in all parts of the current Dutch energy system are required to achieve the national climate goals. This thesis explores the impact from traditional to renewable district heating (DH) on the Dutch electricity and heating sector, at both a national and regional level. The results provide relevant lessons for policy...

Geothermal sources could provide society with clean and renewable energy nearly eternally. Geothermal district heating, in particular, could play a significant role in the energy transition. Although the application has been implemented to some extent, further upscaling is challenging due to various economic, technical and institutional...

District heating system (DHS) optimization is becoming an increasingly important problem because of the unused potential in flexibility that could allow less energy being wasted and the integration of renewable energy. While new optimization methods are proposed every year to tackle this problem, the literature lacks a good way to benchmark...

The integration of pipeline energy storage in the control of a district heating system can lead to profit gain, for example by adjusting the electricity production of a combined heat and power (CHP) unit to the fluctuating electricity price. The uncertainty from the environment, the computational complexity of an accurate model, and the scarcity...
