By signing the Paris Climate Agreement, The Netherlands has committed itself to curtail its CO2- emissions in order to keep global warming well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels. Pivotal to achieve these targets is the phase-out of CO2-intensive electricity generation technologies and investments in renewables. Current investments aiming to...

Urban renewal is seen as an opportunity to improve the environmental and socio-economic performance of cities. Yet, it appears hard to tackle the social challenges by a focus on spatial interventions only. A more participating society and more user involvement could help to improve the social environment. Dutch urban area development, such as...

To meet the goal of the European Union of becoming climate neutral in 2050, the Netherlands and North West Europe will integrate more and more variable renewable energy sources (VRE) into their power system. The uncertain weather conditions on which the VRE are dependent, will increase the need for a more flexible power system. An important...

Trolleybus systems may be a sustainable and cheap alternative to diesel and battery buses. However, to improve sustainablity, the trolleybus system must be powered by renewable energy sources. In this work, a case study on the Arnhem trolleybus grid is performed. First the bus power demands and bus traffic are constructed for the whole system,...

Converging and lasting global issues such as climate change, global warming, resource depletion, etc. have urged interest in science, technology and policy for systemic societal change. These aspects have led the policy makers in the Netherlands to gradually adopt a transition approach. Over the past few years there is an increase in the...

In the residential sector, natural gas has been the main consumed energy resource for surface heating (SH) and domestic hot water (DHW) during cold seasons, and substituting this energy carrier with electricity from renewable resources imposes challenges not only in economic but also technical terms. Due to the intermittent nature of renewable...

Abstract The technical and geographical characteristics of fossil fuels have shaped interstate energy relations for decades. The ongoing energy transition leads to an increasing share of renewables in the electricity mix. Since technical and geographical characteristics of renewables differ significantly from those of fossil fuels, it is likely...

Almost 25 million people in Indonesia are still living in poverty. Most of these people are living in a rural area. Energy provision is considered as one of the first steps towards poverty alleviation. However, there are many challenges faced by the Indonesian government in providing electricity to the rural area, because most of the non...

The growing fleet of offshore wind farms in the North Sea imposes a lot of stress on the energy grid due to its volatile power production. Accurate forecasting models that can predict the power generation of these wind parks could help grid operators to keep the energy grid stable and reduce the re-dispatch of energy. Therefore the objective of...

The carbon emission of fossil fuels contributes to global warming. The start-up ZEF develops a sustainable alternative to create fuel. By capturing CO2 and H2O from the air, the energy from PV solar panels, and the right technology, they create methanol. Methanol can, among other things, be used as a fuel or to create plastics. This product is...

Power-to-methanol (PtM) technologies have a potential to store excess renewable energy in methanol molecules. However, there is a lack of understanding about the role of these technologies in the course of energy transition. In this research, the influence of PtM technologies on power grid’s reliability and CO2 reduction are studied. An agent...

An increasing number of photovoltaic (PV) systems are being installed worldwide and residential sector is responsible for a large part of this growth. Small scale PV systems do not have complex measuring devices and their breakdowns are not spotted immediately by the system owners. This might lead to prolonged time without generating power and...

The human eye has turned itself back to the sky with the commercialisation of the space industry, and a new goal has been set. Setting foot on the Red Planet is the next stage of the human exploration of the universe. The travel to Mars is very lengthy and costly, nonetheless the planet still shows great potential for sustaining human life. To...
