Greenhouse horticulture is a key sector in the Netherlands, significantly contributing to the economy and society but also heavily reliant on natural gas, leading to substantial CO2 emissions. The sector, in partnership with the government, aims to achieve climate neutrality by 2040 as part of the Energy Transition Covenant for Greenhouse...

Mitigating climate change requires a variety of energy technologies and energy simulation approaches to evaluate the best possible system structures. Screening whether novel technologies are a viable solution for a particular country within a cost-optimised system setup is usually simulation- and time-intensive. This study introduces the novel...

Background: Energy system models based on linear programming have been growing in size with the increasing need to model renewables with high spatial and temporal detail. Larger models lead to high computational requirements. Furthermore, seemingly small changes in a model can lead to drastic differences in runtime. Here, we investigate...

The European energy system faces one of its greatest challenges: transitioning from a system dominated by fossil-based energy sources to a completely climate neutral system in 2050. Energy system models provide useful tools that can help to navigate this complex task of designing a future energy system by modelling future systems and assessing...

An important process for navigating the uncertainties associated with the energy transition is power system planning. Energy system models are considered to be useful tools for supporting the power system planning process but are limited in several ways. Firstly, energy system models often have a high computational burden, limiting the...

The energy transition is a fundamental shift in the world’s energy landscape, aimed at reducing carbon emissions and transitioning to a more sustainable, low-carbon energy system. This transition is closely aligned with the goals of the Paris Agreement, the landmark international treaty adopted in 2015, which seeks to limit global warming, with...

Currently, there are optimization models that are able of modeling building renovation, but their scope is limited only to the heating system. There are also models that consider interactions between different energy subsystems, but they lack the ability to simulate building renovation. Having those two things combined would be beneficial as the...

The transition to a carbon-neutral power system has become a global imperative, ever more driven due to recent events such as the energy crisis resulting from the Ukraine invasion. The Netherlands, devoted to the large-scale development of offshore wind and solar PV, see great potential in the use of hydrogen as a gas replacing energy carrier. A...

Climate change is a very urgent issue for our society. The European Union’s commitment is increasing, as evidenced by the Paris Agreement, and individual nations are also developing strategies to become emission-free within the next few years. This has renewed interest in hydrogen, particularly that produced through electrolysis, as a complement...

Achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement requires a significant transformation of current energy systems. The energy sector has hundreds of technologies and millions of actors working together to balance the system. Researchers are using computer-based models to understand the techno-economic impacts on the energy system due to changes in one...

In light of the energy transition to a fossil-free energy system, Europe is experiencing a colossal shift toward renewable energy generation. To facilitate the rapidly growing demand for clean energy, new technologies, and resources are being investigated. Airborne wind energy (AWE) and floating wind turbines have the potential to unlock...

A notable inclusion in the most recent mitigation assessment from the IPCC was the need for a broader societal transformation to achieve the Paris Agreement temperature goals in a fair and equitable manner. Energy system models are becoming increasingly important in politics when it comes to informing the energy transition towards climate...

This research is aimed at designing and optimising a fully renewable energy system for the GCC countries of the Arabian Peninsula for the year 2050 . This includes deriving the energy potential of open-field PV and wind technologies in the region. Apart from the electricity demand of the power sector, the hydrogen demand of the steel, ammonia...

Energy system models are crucial to plan energy transition pathways and understand their impacts. A vast range of energy system modelling tools is available, providing modelling practitioners, planners, and decision-makers with multiple alternatives to represent the energy system according to different technical and methodological considerations...

The city of Amsterdam aims to supply buildings in the historic centre of Amsterdam with sustainable, reliable, and affordable heat for space heating. However, currently only hight temperature heat from biomass and waste incinerators can generate sufficient heat to supply this area. This solution does not lead to reducing the carbon emission...

Torres Sanchez, Luiscarlos (author)
The urgent transition to other forms of energy production, delivery and consumption has induced investments in new technologies such as renewable energy sources, storage units and demand response programs. Investments in these assets represent long-term commitments (e.g. 40 years ahead) from civil society, governmental institutions and capital...

This paper reviews the classification schemes used for bottom-up energy system modelling and proposes a novel one as re-elaboration of the previous schemes. Moreover, this paper identifies that the main challenges of this research field rotate around the concept of resolution. A matrix of challenges in which four main fields are identified:...

Dutch regional municipalities increasingly take an active role in the transition to more sustainable and autonomous energy supply systems, using local energy sources like wind, solar and biomass. The ambition, on the one hand, concerns how an optimal local energy supply system can be designed such that local energy targets can be realized with...

Models and simulators have been widely used in urban contexts for many decades. The drawback of most current models is that they are normally designed for specific objectives, so the elements considered are limited and they do not take into account the potential synergies between related systems. The necessity of a framework to model complex...

This documentation describes a system dynamics simulation model developed to be used in a policy analysis study for the Dutch gas sector. Focusing on uncertainties, an exploratory modeling approach is adopted in this study. This simulation model is used as a platform to generate internally consistent and plausible scenarios within the boundaries...
