During the last three decades, the Earth’s climate is changing rapidly, with higher average temperatures every year that leads not only to the melting of the ice sheet in the arctic and on most of the glaciers all over the world but also to extreme weather phenomena. The rise of the temperature can affect the Sea Surface Height (SSH) in more...

More than half of Mexico’s population is living in a type of poverty, recognized as a multidimensional challenge with a geographical context. Even though Mexico’s poverty is measured in a multifaceted way, the concept of Energy Poverty has not been studied, per se, by governmental institutions. It is until recently that the study of this concept...

The focus of this investigation is the location, sizing and performance of a Hydrogen Fueling Station (HFS) in The Netherlands in 2030. The transportation sector is one of the main air pollution sources, reaching 17% of the total emissions from The Netherlands in 2015. By promoting zero emission vehicles, like Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs)...

In the Netherlands, many cities aim to promote cycling as a solution for sustainable mobility. However, the bicycle parking shortage is common. The popularity of ‘car-free city’ concept provides the opportunity to solve the problem by replacing car parking spaces to bicycle parking spaces. This study used a GIS-based location-allocation method...

The Dutch government set two environmental goals by 2050. One of them is being climate neutral and the other one is to have a circular economy. In order to meet both goals in the best environmental conditions, extensive environmental research is required. This thesis is one of these researches and its main focus is on the climate neutral goal by...

The heating transition goals of the Netherlands are ambitious. To reach the goal of an 80% reduction of CO2 emission by 2050, the total residential heat consumption would need to be drastically cut down. The Dutch government is leaning towards implementing large-scale heating networks and reusing waste heat from non-renewable industry. However,...

Detection of partial discharge (PD) in any high voltage equipment is of great importance to improve the reliability of the device and the power system. Characteristics of PDs, such as: rate of occurrence, magnitude, location and the type; gives information of the assets that must be considered. Nowadays, there are many different methods for...

The rapid growth of the PV industry has meant that prices have been falling steeply, making them more accessible for a wider range of applications. The combined use of noise barriers as energy generating facilities, usually coined as PVNBs has been occurring since the late 80’s. It has not realised wide spread implementation, remaining mostly in...

This study shows how historical topographic maps of the Zuid-Limburg mining area can be used to estimate the effects of mining activities on vertical ground surface motion. Coal has been the most important energy supplier for the Netherlands from the 19th century until the discovery of the large Slochteren gas field. After 1960, mining of coal...
