Cities are getting more congested and polluted as they grow; transportation is one of the contributors to this. Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) could revolutionise the transportation sector for people. In MaaS, the car-sharing schemes will play a vital role and can help in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, in the long-term, these...

The concept of a hydrogen economy has gain renewed attention as a way to enable a cost-effective transition to a low-carbon society. The adoption of hydrogen as an energy carrier beyond its current non-energetic use is however faced with deep uncertainty, making decision-making on policy support difficult. The state-owned enterprise (SOE) is...

Development Finance Institutions have been established to provide finance for long-term economic development in low and middle-income countries. However, these investments are exposed to climate-related risks. This means that Development Finance Institutions need to explore climate adaptation interventions, particularly in view of the fact that...

The development of energy communities across the globe is a landmark for the development of decentralized generation, supporting the transition to renewable energy sources. However, energy communities focus on households with little attention to industries or towards the development of Industrial Community Energy Systems. A central issue is the...

Airports play a key role during humanitarian relief operations. It is therefore important to connect the humanitarian and aviation disciplines to find possibilities to improve these airport operations when operating during and after a humanitarian disaster. This research provides a methodology on how to model, verify, calibrate and validate the...

The size of container ships is constantly growing over recent decades due to a continuous search for economies of scale by shipping lines. The growth of the container ships has necessitated ports to adapt, e.g. by increasing the water depth requirements. Many of the conventional onshore ports cannot receive larger ships without dredging...

Waste-to-Energy (WtE) serves as an important source to meet the growing energy demands of the world in a sustainable manner. It can help in the reduction of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions, lower the risk of environmental pollution and contribute towards the establishment of a circular economy. By generating steam or electrical energy, WtE...

Tighter profit margins and rising aircraft complexity are currently driving the need for aircraft maintenance organizations to increase efficiency. Many organizations believe that digitization is key for improving operational performance. Digitization of the task allocation process at a large aircraft maintenance organization did unexpectedly...

Airport surface movement operations are complex systems that experience many types of adverse events which require resilient, safe and efficient responses. One regularly occurring adverse event is that of runway reconfigurations. Agent based distributed planning and coordination has shown promising results in controlling and maintaining...

Real investment within non-financial corporations has been steadily decreasing in the last fifty years, as increased payout to shareholders is seen as one of the main causes . Chetty & Saez (2006) argue that taxes on profits, dividend payout and capital gain also have a negative impact on payout, and thus real investment in non-financial...

The need for an energy transition has arisen in response to a growing discrepancy between (A) what people find important or valuable in life, and (B) the performance of – or value delivered by – the physical energy system. Since the physical energy system has not changed much in recent decades, it is clear that changes in people’s values are...

In aircraft maintenance, performance of routine maintenance tasks is prone to generate additional non-routine tasks. These non- routine tasks relate to solving an unexpected issue and have specific requirements in terms of materiel, tools and manpower. In existing research regarding optimization of aircraft maintenance environments and schedules...

Monitoring organisations are currently in a transition phase towards risk-based inspections using data models and algorithms in order to increase their efficiency and transparancy. The use of data by monitoring organisations has several benefits, but can at the same time have negative effects in the medium- to long-term. This study explores...

Many regions around the world are facing water shortage, low water quality, unsustainable overuse or other problems that may even cause conflict among different actors. These water resources are typical examples of common-pool resources. Leaders seem to play a crucial role in the emergence of community-based management of resources and...

In order to determine how the energy sector of the Netherlands can or should look in the future, energy scenarios are used to explore possible alternative futures. Many scenarios for the Netherlands exist, but a classification of contemporary Dutch electricity scenarios is missing. Additionally, agent-based modelling (ABM) has often been...

Agent-based modelling (ABM) is a widespread and commonly used technique for the understanding of social system behaviour. Despite ABM being a commonly used method for the analysis of complex social systems, simulated agents still can best be described as autistic before a specific set of social rules is ascribed to them. This discrepancy leads...

This research has been performed to help the Dutch government with the decisions and choices it has to make in order to meet the requirements of the Paris Agreement and the Climate Agreement. Decentralized energy systems can be a solution for meeting these requirements, however trade-offs have to be made between different system criteria, which...

This thesis investigates several kinds of models of describing multi-commodity dynamical flow. Three models have been developed for a spatial logistic network, on which packages are delivered by vehicles and another<br/>model was developed to describe interactions between the customers, the stores and the deliverers, which does not explicitly...

Using a data-driven approach, a heterogeneous populated agent-based model of an airport security checkpoint is calibrated and validated. It is found that average performance using the model can be replicated to a sufficient degree. The heterogenous population could become useful when different passenger fractions - with different performance per...
