The adoption of distributed energy resources such as PV cells, electric vehicles and batteries in electric grids is increasing steadily. This brings new challenges for distribution networks. The current network tariffs were not designed for these types of usage and, in many cases, they are not adequate anymore. Thus, many new tariff frameworks...

Fatigue failures are a major concern in aeronautics. The growth of fatigue cracks in metallic structures and adhesively bonded joints has been studied for decades. Nowadays, most researchers evaluate and predict the fatigue damage growth rate (da/dN) with empirical and phenomenon based approaches, using Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics with...

Small islands that support urban communities provide a unique opportunity to study the urban water cycle, its energy needs, and possible links to renewable energy. The aim of this paper is to explore to what extent an island’s urban water cycle and the renewable electricity production system required to satisfy the urban water cycle’s demand can...

With an ever increasing demand for sustainable energy, limitations of current sustainable technologies are studied widely. In wind farms, the so-called wake effect provides the biggest limitation on wind farm total power output. Using wind from the unaffected boundary layer to re-energize the wind flow in the wake provides a method of limiting...

Population growth and urbanisation trends bring many consequences related to the increase in global energy consumption, CO2 emissions and a decrease in arable land per person. High‑rises have been one of the inevitable buildings of metropoles to provide extra floor space since the early examples in the 19th century. Therefore, optimisation of...

Energy communities are not yet fully self sufficient, mostly due to financial factors. Efforts are made to reduce these factors. Communities invest in community-owned assets, which provide more savings compared to individually-owned assets. Prosumers share their loads for better energy distribution, this can provide a significant impact. A good...

In 2018 it was estimated that the aviation industry produced approximately 1.04 billion tons of CO2. This was an estimated 2.5% of the total CO2 emitted that year. In order to slow down global warming, big changes need to be made to the transportation industry. This change has already begun with commercialization of electric cars. The next step...

Suitable housing and its availability: it seems to be a problem within almost every phase of the housing career in the Netherlands, as the housing market is stagnating. Our older generation is held responsible for this national problem, but why? Deliberate occupation of the ‘oversized’ family home would be the easiest conclusion, but puts a...

In a community energy project, batteries are the asset with the shortest lifespan and are therefore key contributors to cost. Understanding the influence of the battery state of health model on a control algorithm designed for redistribution of benefits in terms of financial gains in a community energy project can help elongate battery lifetime...

With the climate change and energy transition becoming evident and ever so relevant, industrialised regions focussed on fossil fuels need to rethink their socio-economic plan. Furthermore, urban designers are obliged to rethink the energy paradigm. This report combines energy landscape and resilient region theory and applies it on the peri-urban...

In 2021, many Dutch municipalities have started to transition away from fossil fuel sources towards more sustainable ones in order to achieve the goals set by the Parisian climate agreement of 2015. 2021 was also the year in which a new Omgevingswet was introduced in the Netherlands, in which citizen participation has become a very important...

In 2018, a new standard was released for daylight in buildings: EN 17037. This is the first standard for daylight in buildings for Europe. In the Netherlands it will replace the NEN 2057. The determination method for daylight provision for EN 17037 is based on internal illuminance. Additional ambitions for the design quality factors: view,...

The relation to energy is what carries humanity through every new spatial possibility. The context of the European Green Deal that triggers decarbonisation of many industries and faster energy transition to the latest technologies of renewable energy production is only one among many past and future transitions. All in all, it brings different...

A radical change of the energy system is required in light of the dramatic effects of human-induced climate change. In this perspective, a future renewable hydrogen energy system was proposed, where biogenic resources are ascribed relevant potential as source of biogenic hydrogen and biogenic carbon dioxide. In this light, the research brings...

This study intended to combine façade energy renovation strategies with circular design to improve energy performance and overall sustainability and circularity of the existing building stock. BIM technology can facilitate energy renovation projects by following circular design principles. A BIM library can offer most of the benefits of...

Issues such as climate change, ecological conservation and sustainable energy have received a great deal of attention in the last decade. Studies have shown that cities are responsible for major energy use and waste emissions. In dealing with the growing environmental problems, people have to look to the cities they live in. Today, urbanisation...

CMOS downscaling has provided the means to efficiently process the huge raw data resulted from the information technology revolution. However, this becomes more difficult because of leakage, reliability, and cost walls. To keep the pace with the exploding market needs at affordable cost, novel alternative technologies are under investigation;...

The building environment has high energy consumption and carbon emission which contributes to the rapid climate change. The changing climate condition not only impacts the natural environment but also our habitation. To improve the building performance in both energy and indoor comfort, performance-based design is commonly applied in...

Urgent action is needed to decrease maritime emissions. The renewable wind energy sector must also decrease its life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Total GHG emissions from offshore wind turbines are approximately 120% more compared to onshore wind turbines. Moreover, it is estimated that Walk to Work (W2W) vessels are responsible for 3.3...

Following the Paris Agreement of 2015, Indonesia aims to reduce emissions by 29% by 2030, compared to the business as usual scenario. In Indonesia it is expected that between 2015 and 2030 the electricity demand could triple and the total energy demand could increase by 80%. Bioenergy would account for more than half of all renewable energy in...
