The potential impact of a grand unified theory of the brain on the robotics community might be immense, as it might hold the key to the general artificial intelligence. Such a theory might make revolutionary leaps in robot intelligence by improving the quality of our lives. The last two decades have witnessed the rise of one such brain theory -...

Offshore wind is a rapidly maturing renewable energy technology and is expected to play a central role in future energy systems. It has the potential to generate more than 420,000 TWh per year worldwide, an amount approximately equal to eighteen times the global electricity demand today. While many of the most abundantly resourceful sites are at...

In the global energy transition where the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy is needed, wind energy is a growing industry. In the offshore wind industry, Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) are needed to operate and maintain wind farms. To reduce the environmental footprint of SOVs at offshore wind farms, the possibility of battery...

Energy poverty is an increasingly important issue. While vulnerable households are especially at risk in the energy transition, energy poverty effects of the transition are unknown. In Delft, a district heating network based on geothermal energy is planned. The distributive justice aspects of heat networks in the heating transition remain...

Ethiopia’s energy demand is expected to increase sevenfold in the coming 30 years, resulting in increased variable renewable electricity (VRE) production by solar PV and wind. Energy storage acts as a buffer that mitigates the effects of over- or under-capacity in production by VRE. With 97% of global bulk energy storage, pumped hydro storage is...

Methane pyrolysis is a technology that has the potential to greatly reduce the CO2 emissions of hydrogen production on a large scale. The process generates solid carbon instead of gaseous, thereby inhibiting emissions and has a relatively low process energy demand.<br/><br/>A three-step approach was taken to investigate the feasibility of...

Researches have been conducted to involve the sustainability of energy in the building's early design stage. The methods used include the IEF-based method, the BIM-API-based method, and other approaches. However, these methods have not helped architects out in the early design stage since the complexity of the assessment is not decreased.<br/>...

This thesis investigates the total environmental impact of various alternative marine energy carriers while taking the powering increase into account due to their disadvantageous spatial requirements compared to conventional fuel. A parametric design tool for bulk carriers, tankers, container ships, and trailing suction hopper dredgers has been...

This paper investigates the spatial requirements of alternative marine energy carriers and their impact on ship design and powering for constant operational requirements. A parametric design tool for bulk carriers, tankers, and container ships has been developed for the predicted future marine energy carriers to determine the main engine brake...

Weenk, Thomas (author)
Battery energy storage systems (BESS) that are integrated with the electricity grid have proven to be a suitable solution for reducing costs by providing flexible demand, but are often uneconomical when used solely for this purpose. Despite the research efforts showing the benefits of an energy-integrated harbor-area smart grid (HASG), the...

In order to limit the global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, all sectors have to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and become more sustainable. This also includes the building sector, which is in Europe responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption (European Commission, 2020). A way to work towards this goal is by retrofitting...

'Zero Waste to Energy' appropriates part of a massive industrial complex to embed values of circularity and act as a seed of change. Storytelling, Material Flow Analysis and design come together to create a parasitic architecture, which weaves a vertical urban campsite and chapel into a chimney of the Netherlands’ largest Waste-to-Energy plant....

Energy harvesters subtract energy from their surroundings and convert this to electrical energy. Even though energy output is generally low, energy harvesters can offer great value by offering the possibility of self-sustaining devices, combined with the developments in low power semiconductors. Many examples can be found of applications that...

A significant decrease in greenhouse gas emissions can be achieved by including a prediction of future power consumption in the control of ships’ power plants during transits. Moreover, including a prediction of power consumption in the Energy Management System (EMS) during Dynamic Positioning (DP) operations can also contribute to a reduction...

The penetration of the renewable energy sources in the global market has been constantly growing over the last years. This trend is expected to accelerate even more in the future due to the improving technologies, the economies of scale, the competitive supply chains and the improving developer experience. The main challenge for a faster and...

Distributed Energy Resources (DER), like solar panels, are projected to take over power generation responsibilities. This will happen during the transition of the current power grid to the Smart Grid. Due to the importance of this power to society, it is crucial that the grid stays stable.<br/><br/>DER devices are similar to IoT devices in scale...

Cavitation is the formation of vapor pockets in a liquid due to a pressure drop or an increase in speed. Cavitation nuisance can be disastrous for mechanical components, and therefore needs to be controlled from an early design stage. However, predicting cavitation dynamics using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and therefore the performance...

According to International Energy Agency (IEA), the demand for high value chemicals (HVC) will increase by 60% to a total of 400 Mt/year by 2050, leading to an increase of 30% in direct CO2 emissions. However, the Paris agreement forces the sector to reduce its emissions by 90-100% in 2050 compared to 1990. This induces the need for a more...

Lower temperature heating (LTH) involves using the lowest possible supply temperatures to meet residential heating demands, thus supporting the integration of sustainable heating sources and decarbonising the existing residential stock. However, choosing appropriate energy renovation options to prepare existing dwellings for LTH presents...

The International Energy Agency (IEA) emphasizes that using real building energy use data (RBEUD) to reflect the actual condition of buildings and inform policy-making is the most effective way to reduce buildings’ carbon emissions. However, based on IEA’s evaluation, regional and national building stock data are limited and lacking. Especially...
