In the last decades, the excessive increase in average global temperature related to a massive rise in greenhouse gas emissions showed the world how the fossil fuel society we live in today is drastically modifying and destroying the world we live in and is turning it in an un-habitable planet. Scientist all over the world made it clear that if...

Thin-film flexible solar panels can be utilized on many surfaces where conventional solar panels are hard to be used such as side walls of buildings, ship roofs or curved surfaces. In conventional solar cells, glass is used to protect the panels from external damage. However due to its heavy weight and rigidity, glass is not an option for thin...

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...

Saturn's largest natural satellite, Titan, is an icy moon expected to harbour a liquid sub-surface water ocean capable of habiting extra-terrestrial life. The spherical harmonic expansion of the gravity field and the tidal Love number k2 can be used to estimate densities, depths, and phases of different layers from Titan’s interior structure,...

Residential PV energy is already evolving to a major factor in the energy transition. However, conventional solar home systems pose various disadvantages concerning modularity, flexibility and ease of installation. The Photovoltaic Battery Integrated Module (PBIM) is an alternative approach towards integrating all the components of a solar home...

Miniaturization in spacecraft is an ongoing process in which the launched satellites become smaller and smaller. This trend introduces issues, such as the choice for a reliable and efficient propulsion subsystem. The implementation of engines would enable the spacecraft to perform maneuvers such as orbit changes, drag compensation and attitude...

Offshore solar power installations can be increased in size and efficiency compared to land based installations due to the availability of space and the cooling effect of water. To increase survivability in large waves, very large floating solar platforms can be made flexible. However, a flexible structure is susceptible to wrinkling due to...

In 2017, Hurricane Maria proved how fragile Puerto Rico’s grid is to natural disasters. The consequence of this fragility was the longest power blackout in the history of the U.S., which affected 3.3 million people, lasted for 3.4 billion customer-hours, and resulted in economic losses estimated in 95 billion USD. The solution, then, is energy...

Tests of General Relativity are often done in the Solar System by using tracking data from interplanetary space missions, to measure the perturbation on the orbits of the planets that is predicted by General Relativity. The next best opportunity for such a test is the BepiColombo spacecraft by the European Space Agency, which will arrive at...

Due to the high-efficiency potential over 40%, the two-terminal (2T) perovskite/c-Si tandem solar cell becomes a desirable and promising candidate for solar cells. The photovoltaic materials and devices (PVMD) group in TU Delft has developed the c-Si solar cell using poly-SiOx as carrier-selective passivating contacts. The utilization of poly...

In a bid to battle global warming the Dutch government has set ambitious targets to cut CO2 emissions in the Dutch Climate Agreement [1]. Aside from this state-driven initiative in line with the Paris agreement, several Dutch cities have presented their own climate initiatives. The city of Amsterdam has pledged to reduce its CO2 emissions by 55%...
