We are on the verge of a global energy system revolution. By signing and ratifying global treaties, the groundwork for this revolution is laid. The objective is to limit global warming to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and stabilise greenhouse gas concentrations at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference...

Sustainable energy systems can only be achieved when reducing both carbon emissions and water use for energy generation. Although the water use for electricity generation has been well studied, integrated assessments of the water use by low-carbon heat systems are lacking. In this paper we present an analysis of the water use of scenarios for...

Renewable energy sources like wind and solar, are intermittent, which means demand will not always match supply causing volatile and sometimes even negative electricity prices. For power companies it will be valuable to invest in technologies that can respond to those prices, which will result in an increasing flexibility of demand. However, to...

Spruit, Thomas (author)
Externalities of conventional energy sources encourage a transition to a sustainable energy system. Both the intermittency of renewable energy sources and the carbon-intensity of the heat sector challenge this transition. In the context of heat and renewable power integration, this report focuses on balancing uncertain wind power production...

The Netherlands aims to accelerate the energy transition. Accordingly, ambitious targets have been set for the industrial sector. This will require additional investments in the Dutch industry which is expected to reduce the CO2 emissions at limited costs in comparison with other sectors. However, the ambition to reduce the emissions can create...

Wind energy is the most promising renewable energy source for the Netherlands in the energy transition period. However, the investment costs of the offshore wind are huge. Until now, the government was supporting the investments in wind farms with subsidy schemes irrespective of the electricity market dynamics. The latest large-scale offshore...

The increase in the share of renewable energy sources in the Dutch energy mix, requires an increase in flexibility from the power consumers and producers. A key issue in the availability of wind and solar power that it is independent of the power demand. Fortunately, the liberalised power market provides a financial incentive to increase both...
