Energy poverty is an increasingly important issue. While vulnerable households are especially at risk in the energy transition, energy poverty effects of the transition are unknown. In Delft, a district heating network based on geothermal energy is planned. The distributive justice aspects of heat networks in the heating transition remain...

Distributed Energy Resources (DER), like solar panels, are projected to take over power generation responsibilities. This will happen during the transition of the current power grid to the Smart Grid. Due to the importance of this power to society, it is crucial that the grid stays stable.<br/><br/>DER devices are similar to IoT devices in scale...

Airport terminals are complex sociotechnical systems, in which humans interact with diverse technical systems. A natural way to represent them is through agent-based modeling. However, this method has two drawbacks: it entails a heavy computational burden and the emergent properties are often difficult to analyze. The purpose of our research is...

Cancer cell migration between different body parts is the driving force behind cancer metastasis, which causes mortality of patients. Migration of cancer cells often proceeds by penetration through narrow cavities in possibly stiff tissues. In our previous work [12], a model for the evolution of cell geometry is developed, and in the current...

Compared to traditional public transport, ride-hailing makes it possible for people to get a more comfortable and faster riding experience with a higher fare. Ride-sharing fall in between the two, offering a discount at the price level of ride-hailing, yet operates with more detours and less comfortable experience. In this study, with different...

Climate change will lead to more extreme climate and weather phenomena, and this includes the increased risk and severity of flooding. Flooding is one of the most destructive and common natural hazards globally, and rising sea levels and extreme precipitation mean that many human settlements will be situated in climate-sensitive areas. <br/><br/...

In the Netherlands, a substantial burden of morbidity and mortality persists for cardiovascular diseases in women. Despite this, the reduction of cardiovascular diseases in women has plateaued. This is against the backdrop of an ageing population and the prevalence of sedentary and unhealthy lifestyles.<br/>This research presents a novel model...

Extensive electrification of the inland shipping sector is necessary to achieve the EU goals to be climate neutral and increase inland shipping by 50\% by 2050. This requires a thoughtful and large-scale roll-out of new charging stations layouts, for ships with relatively high and largely varying energy demands. Current approaches for optimal...

What exactly causes the emergence of the attitude-behaviour gap, and to what extent, is not fully understood. Previous academic research has shown that many barriers to adoption remain, and that difficulty lies in the heterogeneity of consumers. Through the use of a simulation model this thesis explores the emergence of the attitude-behaviour...

In a dynamic or disruptive situation, such as disasters, a fully mobile and decentralized infrastructure-less network seems to be a viable option for communication. Citizens are confronted with challenges such as complicated deployment of these networks, resource-constrained mobile phones and mobility. This requires communication networks to...

Communicative diseases have put a burden on societal well-being throughout history. The global advent of the COVID-19 virus made the world painstakingly aware of the impact a pandemic can have on all levels of society. To combat the spread and impact of a pathogen, policymakers turn to specialized tools to craft policy. One of these tools is...

The use of Automated Decision Making (ADM) systems in the public sector will become increasingly prevalent in the future, making citizens increasingly likely to be confronted with decisions that have been made fully automatically, without human intervention. Ever more digitization increases the opaqueness of the social benefits system in the...

Climate change is happening and has an increasingly great impact on nature, ecosystems, biodiversity and human society. To reduce adverse consequences of hazards for current and future generations, one must understand how adaptation behavior of civil societies could develop itself over time, interact with its environment and effect its ecosystem...

This thesis aims to support the design and implementation of energy-secure thermal energy communities (TEC) by investigating their technical, behavioural and institutional settings through a collective action perspective. The thesis shows that energy-secure TEC initiatives are collective energy systems with particular characteristics and...

Reducing meat consumption is considered a crucial and urgent element in terms of reaching climate targets, public health and the protection of animal welfare. Especially in industrialised countries, it is considered the most important recommendation in the field of sustainable food consumption. The transition is difficult to realise, as meat...

Different leader-follower behavior may be observed in models, such as group gathering, backtracking, and flexibility of the group. However, a comparison of these behaviors resulting in possible substantially different estimates of optimal evacuation procedures is lacking. Hence, we developed an Agent-based model in combination with exploratory...

Misinformation on social media is an urgent grand challenge. Misinformation has caused excess deaths because people abstain from getting vaccinated and other evidence-based prevention behaviors. Misinformation also influences various other important topics such as climate change. And it has the potential to influence countless other areas. In...

Climate change intensifies the frequency and severity of floods - the most devastating and costly climate-induced hazard. Government adaptations such as dikes or beach nourishments are important, yet insufficient in the face of worsening hazards. They reduce the hazard probability, but the local actions at the household level determine the...

As our electricity system becomes more complex, decentralized, and unstable, research on solutions to relieve the grid are needed. Local energy storage could contribute significantly to the solution. This study focused on one solution in particular: the neighborhood battery. Neighborhood batteries are emerging as a technical and social...
