The energy transition is an essential shift towards sustainable and renewable sources, mitigating climate change. However, a large bottleneck arises in this transition as the electricity grid struggles to transport all this renewable energy, resulting in grid congestion. Energy hubs (e-hubs) are local collaborations between stakeholders, where...

Indonesia has been dependent on its abundant coal reserves to meet its increasing electricity demand. The Indonesian government is aware of the negative environmental effects of coal combustion and pledged to become carbon neutral by 2060 or earlier by transitioning towards renewables. In principle, it is known that Indonesia has large renewable...

The Dutch Ministry of Defence (NLMoD) has stated the goal of reducing dependency on fossil fuels by at least 20% by the year 2030 and at least 70% by the year 2050 compared to the year 2010. Research in the NLMoD explores the possibility of changing diesel-fuelled vehicles and weapon platforms to alternative forms of energy such as electric or...

The EU Green Deal aims to ensure a socially just energy transition, but the shift towards renewable energies often replicates the centralized, top-down approach of traditional fossil fuel systems, negatively impacting rural areas. This report reimagines this paradigm by advocating for decentralized energy communities, particularly in regions...

Climate change poses a significant threat to global lifestyles, necessitating urgent action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). The Netherlands, committed to the Paris Climate Agreement, faces the challenge of meeting ambitious emission reduction targets set by the European Union's Fit for 55 initiative. However, the integration of...

Kolff, Fenna (author)
The world is witnessing unprecedented climate changes, which have worsened over the past couple of years. Despite significant progress in renewable energy, achieving a reduction of global warming remains challenging. Renewable energy sources like solar, wind, and hydroelectric technologies offer promising solutions, but challenges persist due to...

Steenbergen, Emy (author)
The complex relationship between humans and the natural world is still visible in 2023s urban planning: a city is a place for humans, and nature gives space to all non-human species. The anthropocentric perspective within the urban environment puts humans above non-human nature. This is also the case within urban renewal in the Netherlands,...

Future power systems, in which generation will come almost entirely from variable Renewable Energy Sources (vRES), will be characterized by weather-driven supply and flexible demand. In a simulation of the future Dutch power system, we analyze whether there are sufficient incentives for market-driven investors to provide a sufficient level of...

In the context of increasing focus on social sustainability, neighborhood rehabilitation has emerged as a crucial component of global urban renewal initiatives. Distinct from most renewal paradigms that are usually one-offs, neighborhood rehabilitation is a long-term endeavor that requires ongoing resident participation to effectively address...

Climate change and geopolitical risks call for the rapid transformation of electricity systems worldwide, with Europe at the forefront. Wind and solar are the lowest cost, lowest risk, and cleanest energy sources, but their variability poses integration challenges. Combining both technologies and integrating regions with dissimilar generation...

The increasing greenhouse gas (CO2) emissions constitute one of the most significant global environmental issues. CO2 emissions from buildings and transportation are responsible for the largest proportion of total global carbon emissions from various sectors. Therefore it is necessary to utilize clean energy sources (e.g., renewable energy,...

Renewable heating systems (RHS), such as solar thermal, geothermal, heat pumps, wood pellets, biomass, are essential to reduce dependence on fossil fuel-based heating systems and resulting CO<sub>2</sub> emissions. Despite their benefits in terms of CO<sub>2</sub> emissions, the widespread adoption of RHS has yet to be achieved. This paper...
