Lubbers, Friso (author)
The Dutch government has the ambition to be climate neutral by 2050. An important pillar to realizing this ambition is to place large numbers of wind turbines in the North Sea. The Dutch cabinet decided in 2022 to realize around 21 GW offshore wind capacity in 2030, but the offshore wind demand in the Netherlands after 2030 remains uncertain....

With its potentially disruptive nature, the smart grid can be viewed from both a transformational and an innovation systems perspective. Synthesising these, a research approach is adopted in which a Technological Innovation System (TIS) analysis is combined with a transformational perspective to identify a broader range of success and failure...

Marulo, F. (author)
In the context of rapid urban transformations, this thesis explores the possible preservation strategies for historic military systems that used to be embedded in extra-urban settings, but that now are absorbed in the development dynamics of complex metropolitan areas. The research stems from the main peculiarity of these heritage systems:...

Ensuring good living accomodation is a constitutional duty of the government, but there is now a shortage of 300,000 homes. Demand for housing has grown sharply in recent years. In the last two years, the housing market issue has been high on the political agenda again. In it, the issue of starters regarding home ownership occupies a prominent...

One of the many challenges facing the Netherlands is the government’s<br/>goal of building one million homes by 2030, as a solution to the housing<br/>deficiency that’s plaguing the Netherlands. The intended method is to densify current urban areas rather than continuously expand outward into green areas to keep the natural environment open for...

The Netherlands has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 95% by 2050. In this respect, hydrogen is a promising part of the pathway to meeting climate targets. However, there is a knowledge gap regarding the potential domestic and global supply chains in the Netherlands and their techno-economic and socio-political performance under...

Mobility is an important part of daily life. With modern mobility systems, people have access to a range of transport modes allowing them to basically reach any destination they want. Although people often have multiple options to choose from, personal mobility is dominated by motorized road transport in many countries and cities, also in the...

In order to understand the impact of new infrastructure projects, appraisal tools are used to estimate the impact it will have on society. Infrastructure is a key part of society, enabling and disabling society to work and live, playing a vital part in everyone’s lives. Former studies by Annema, Frenken, et al. (2017), Niek Mouter (2017b) and...

The transition towards greener mobility will play a significant role in decarbonizing the economy. Hence, policy makers need tools that allow them to test alternatives towards that goal. This drive has led to the development of increasingly accurate transport models, with the latest generation being activity-based transport demand models. These...

Kuit, Esmee (author)
Living in the deep polders in the deltaic landscape of the Netherlands poses large-scale challenges. Biodiversity decline, weather extremes, sea level rise, salination, the housing crisis, and subsidence affect large parts of the Netherlands. These challenges should be tackled together through the integral question of ‘what does the area need?’...

Hubert, Naomi (author)
To use solar energy efficiently, reduce emissions and net congestion problems, prosumer households should substitute grid-consumed energy with self-consumption. Loadshifting is a low-cost measure to increase self-consumption, shifting energy-intensive behaviors (such as running the laundry machine) to periods of time when energy is produced....

The Dutch government has set an ambitious goal: by 2030, greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands should be 49% lower than they were in 1990.But even though geothermal energy is gaining recognition given the high heating demand in the Netherlands and its subsurface potential, implementation of this technology, especially in urban areas, is...

Tan, Chia Wu (author)
In recent years, there has been an emergence of the concept of “circular economy (CE)”, which promises to close the loop in terms of resource extraction consumption in the prevailing economic paradigm. This promises environmental and socioeconomic benefits, but the risk exists where the benefits of the circular transition might be unevenly...

As part of the Dutch sustainable landfill project iDS, two compartments of the Dutch landfill Wieringermeer have been treated by in-situ aeration since 2017. The chosen method of aeration is over-extraction, where suction pressure is created causing ambient air to intrude into the landfill. Aeration induces enhanced settlement due to the...

The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management is committed to enhancing the accessibility and sustainability of the Dutch mobility system. Working from home (WFH) has been discussed as a policy lever to decrease commute travel and, thereby, congestion for decades. During the COVID-19 pandemic, this discussion regained momentum. WFH...

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...

This integrative literature research analyses economic inequality using a system perspective. Topics related to the quantification, causes, and effects revolving around economic inequality are reviewed and presented in an overarching conceptual framework. The functioning of the conceptual framework is tested by performing an application on the...

Rijkswaterstaat has introduced the two-stage model in the Dutch construction industry in order to reduce risks in large and complex projects (Rijkswaterstaat, 2020a). However, it is also possible that the two-stage model can influence the sustainability of infrastructure projects since the risks are reduced and a different way of collaboration...

Coastal and offshore infrastructure must be designed to withstand extreme wave-induced loading conditions. Extreme Value Analysis (EVA) is often employed to infer probabilistic distributions that provide information about extreme design conditions. In traditional practices, EVA is performed under the assumption of stationarity. This means that...
