Wagener, Claire (author)
This master thesis provides a review of dynamic energy contracts and their role in shifting electricity consumption in households in the Netherlands. In this research the mixed-methods approach is used to identify changes in electricity consumption behavior of consumers with a dynamic energy contract compared to consumers with a fixed energy...

Tulp, Emma (author)
The scarcity of resources is increasing, resulting in the transformation of entire regions. People take a lot of the resources on Earth for granted. This calls for a transition from the current ‘throw-away’-economy to a ‘circular’ economy. The constant circulation of materials and products in this type of system preserves the value of materials....

At a time when India experiences rapidly rising living standards, while facing increasing sustainability challenges, decoupling economic growth from the increase in energy consumption is a critical challenge. Energy efficiency solutions in the residential sector have an important role, as these can significantly curb energy consumption. To steer...

While technological development, people began to pay extensive attention to climate issues and reduce the impact of human life on the planet through actions. House-hold energy as one of the main energy consumption is considered as an important direction to improve energy problems. Greenchoice as a green energy provider is willing to contribute...

The ever-evolving power grid is becoming smarter and smarter. Modern houses come with smart meters and energy conscious consumers will buy additional smart meters to place in their home to help monitor their energy consumption. This new smart technology also opens the door to more accurate power consumption forecasting. In this study we look at...

This thesis examines the impact of the formalisation process on recipient households in peri-urban areas of Albania, by employing a multi-dimensional framework, adapted from Frediani and Hansen (2015), which uses aspects of both the Capability Space and the Sustainable Livelihoods Framework. The main research question explores the impact of...

Floods appear in many of the world's oldest stories (i.e. Noah and the Arc in the Abrahamic religions, Manu in Hinduism, and the Gun-Yu myth in Chinese mythology). When observed historically, they often have an element of mysticism about them, symbolizing eradication and rebirth. In the present, however, there is little that is mystical about...

The high level of nitrogen emissions over the last decades and their adverse impact on the natural environment and human health are a pressing environmental issue. A nitrogen tax can be a cost-efficient and effective policy instrument to reduce nitrogen emissions. However, adverse effects on low- and middle-income households might lead to...

Featuring the most direct and closest social relationships, the household plays a crucial role in influencing an individual's wants, needs, and behavior. However, the role of intra-household decisions in the connection between the built environment and activity-travel behavior has not been systematically analyzed. This paper adds to the...

Reducing heating-related energy consumption is vital in Europe, where it accounts for a significant portion of domestic energy usage. We studied the factors that influence reduced heating-related consumption by using three theoretical frameworks: the Theory of Planned Behaviour, the Value Belief Norm theory, and the Prototype Willingness Model....

Flood events are expected to increase in their frequency and severity, which results in higher flood risk without additional adaptation measures. The information gained from flood risk models is essential in effective disaster risk management. However, vulnerability estimations are often a large driver of uncertainty, and flood damage is...

Stoopman, Sam (author)
What exactly causes the emergence of the attitude-behaviour gap, and to what extent, is not fully understood. Previous academic research has shown that many barriers to adoption remain, and that difficulty lies in the heterogeneity of consumers. Through the use of a simulation model this thesis explores the emergence of the attitude-behaviour...

Climate change is happening and has an increasingly great impact on nature, ecosystems, biodiversity and human society. To reduce adverse consequences of hazards for current and future generations, one must understand how adaptation behavior of civil societies could develop itself over time, interact with its environment and effect its ecosystem...

Lechner, Jonas (author)
Climate change intensifies the frequency and severity of floods - the most devastating and costly climate-induced hazard. Government adaptations such as dikes or beach nourishments are important, yet insufficient in the face of worsening hazards. They reduce the hazard probability, but the local actions at the household level determine the...

Uijl, Mark Jan (author)
The residential energy consumption and energy affordability are crucial in policy design, with regard to energy efficiency and energy poverty. This has become even more relevant now, as the energy transition is taking off and the energy prices are soaring. Given the inequality in the energy consumption and energy affordability, it is therefore...

Energy poverty, understood as a situation in which one household is not able to afford essential domestic energy services, is a phenomenon spread throughout Europe. In the following study, the Republic of Serbia will be considered specifically. The latter is, as other Western Balkan countries, affected by inefficient dwellings and housing...

The Netherlands is currently facing a shortage of affordable housing, specifically for middle-income households. These households with too much income to qualify for social housing but not enough to buy a home tend to squeeze into the free rental market increasingly. Housing specifically targeted at this group is known as intermediate housing,...

In this paper, design principles for a co-housing project focused at young adults (18-27 years old) wishing to live in the Tarwewijk in Rotterdam Zuid are being proposed. These principles are based on literary research, reference projects, fieldwork and workshops held for students familiar with the design location. Topics that are touched upon...

Recent years have seen a rise in computation power, storage and opensource data has become more accessible. This results in new opportunities for microsimulation models. Most of these models require a realistic population but the data for this is usually not available. Therefore, population synthesis is used to generate the statistical...

Luteijn-Nava Guerrero, G.D.C. (author)
In the Netherlands, a complex heat transition is taking place. Currently, the country's built environment largely relies on natural gas for heating. By 2050, the housing sector should, in principle, be free of this fuel. Changes in laws, policies, regulations, and technical solutions to achieve this goal will be challenging. Their implementation...
