This thesis considers the problem of designing a mechanism that efficiently regulates imbalances on the energy grid. Brokers aggregate supply and demand on the energy market by buying and selling power ahead of time. Mispredictions create discrepancies between supply and demand and need to be resolved. With the increasing usage of sustainable...

Electrical grids are extremely large, highly complex and dynamic systems. The depletion of natural resources used for power generation has led to the facelift of the traditional grid system to a more efficient and smarter grid system. Smart grids aim at better energy utilization, right from generation to consumption. The electrical grid is...

Currently, the electricity market is shifting from fossil fuels to renewable resources. The lack of controllability of the output of solar cells and wind turbines conflicts with the requirement that suppliers match their production with the demand at all times. Our solution is to drop this requirement and instead use flexibility on side of the...

A result of Bulow and Klemperer has suggested that auctions may be a better tool to obtain an efficient outcome than negotiation. For example, some auction mechanisms can be shown to be efficient and strategy-proof. However, they generally also require that additional constraints are met which are not always easy to guarantee in practice. It...

Demand responsive transportation has the potential to provide efficient public door-to-door transport with a high quality. In currently implemented systems in the Netherlands, however, we observe a decrease in the quality of service (QoS), expressed in longer travel times for the customers. Currently, generally one transport company is...

When there is one buyer interested in obtaining a service from one of a set of sellers, multi-attribute or multi-issue auctions can ensure an allocation that is efficient. Even when there is no transferable utility (e.g., money), a recent qualitative version of the Vickrey auction may be used, the QVA, to obtain a Pareto-efficient outcome where...
