The European Union through its Roadmap 2050 has mandated nearly zero energy as the standard for all building stock. While newly built buildings will be of nearly zero energy standard by 31 December 2020 (public-owned buildings after 31 December 2018), new buildings form only 1% of the addition to the existing building stock which implies that to...

As the amount of air traffic increases every year, the capacity of the current Air Traffic Control (ATC) structure is reaching its limit. Shifting the responsibility of aircraft separation from the ground to aircraft (free flight) eliminates the ATC constraint for aviation growth. Furthermore, free flight allows for direct routing of aircraft....

Continuous Climb Operations aim at improving the efficiency of a flight's climb phase by reducing the number of level-offs. The associated fuel-benefits help airlines and airports to comply with future emission demands, rising fuel prices and modernizing airspace requirements. Previously, most studies in this field only considered the effect of...

Current literature on the usage of the experience curve in a societal cost-benefit analysis is lacking. It is unclear how the experience curve should be used in a societal cost benefit analysis and how large the effect or added value is. This thesis uses a case study to analyses effects of the experience curve on a societal cost benefit analysis...

In this report, the possibility of replacing high performance thermoplastic polymers with alternative low-cost ones is investigated. Since thermoplastics offer fast processing times and the opportunity to use efficient production processes which are not suitable for thermosets, they are an attractive material
system for the aerospace...

Underground transportation infrastructure projects are a possible solution to the increasing demand for transportation, limited space and congestion in urban areas. In addition, these kinds of projects are in line with the need for improvement of the quality of the public urban space. Nowadays, when a municipality applies for funding with the...

Electricity fraud generates costs for different stakeholders in Dutch society. Media publications about fraud costs often only refer to stolen electricity and lost taxes. But that is not all. In many of the electricity fraud cases there is a strong relationship with the illegal cultivation of hemp. The combination of electricity fraud and hemp...

As the demand for air transportation increases, it becomes more and more challenging for the aviation industry to reduce its CO2 impact. This thesis presents the potential fuel and emission benefits of implementing continuous descent approaches (CDA) at Schiphol International Airport, from cruise altitude to the final approach fix, for a large...

A meshed North Sea offshore electricity grid with high renewable energy penetration, as envisioned by the European Commission, is still at its infancy. Currently, point-to-point high-voltage DC interconnections across borders are already being implemented successfully, but the next steps of expanding these interconnectors with additional...

In the last years, the country of Greece is striving to overcome the severe financial consequences of the European debt crisis, that hindered its economic growth and downgraded the quality of life of its citizens. The difficult economic state of Greece as well as the long-existing global problem of energy resources depletion constitute the two...

Ultimaker produces desktop Fused Deposit Modelling (FDM) 3D printers. One downfall of the FDM technology is that it is relatively slow in producing solid parts, compared to other rapid prototyping techniques. Larger volumes increase the printing time exponentially. This project started off with a unique idea to replace the internal volume with a...

The importance of including flexibility into transportation infrastructure projects decision-making is widely recognised. Real-option analysis (ROA) is a technique for valuing flexibility to adapt to an uncertain future which can be included in the traditional Cost-Benefit Analysis. However, current practice of real options in transportation...

Until recently, biodiesel development in Indonesia is far from the target. The previous government policy cannot substantially increase its domestic consumption. Moreover, as the crude price oil decrease, the viability of biodiesel development is still questionable. This is due to the fact that biodiesel still remains uncompetitive since the...

With the advent of smart machines, ICT revolution is moving towards a relatively unknown territory. Economic theories play important role in shaping the direction and effect of this technological change to the lives of everyone. The acceleration of unemployment and dualism which the ICT revolution is expected to create has raised concerns...

In this thesis, we investigate the maximum energy benefit of compute-and-forward applying on general networks. The energy benefit is defined as the ratio of the minimum energy consumption in network when a symbol is communicated successfully for every session when the network is in traditional routing mode, and the minimum energy consumption in...

In the Netherlands the Socio-Economic Council (SER) has signed an Energy Agreement where Dutch parties have laid out a basis for a broadly supported, robust and future proof energy and climate policy. In the joint vision on the future energy mix, LNG and bio LNG are being referred to as important opportunities for the Dutch economy to sustain...

The Netherlands has the goal to have 14% of the total energy production in 2020 generated in a sustainable way. In order to achieve this goal, onshore wind turbines need to have a combined capacity of 6000 MW and the offshore capacity needs to be increased to 4450 MW. The onshore wind industry is however quite saturated. Experts forecast that...

The introduction of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) is a result of the financial crisis of 2008 and one of the first concrete measures of the European Commission in order to prevent a new crisis of this scale. After the fall of Lehman Brothers, often described as being “too big to fail” the decision was made to...

Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) is the most widely used tool for evaluating policy programs and capital expenditure. It involves estimating, where possible, the full direct and indirect private; and social costs and benefits associated with a policy action or potential project. The Netherlands is one of the countries that use CBA in transport...
