Climate change poses a significant threat to global lifestyles, necessitating urgent action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). The Netherlands, committed to the Paris Climate Agreement, faces the challenge of meeting ambitious emission reduction targets set by the European Union's Fit for 55 initiative. However, the integration of...

The importance of climate change is getting increasingly more attention from all stakeholders in urban development. This results in the energy network operator being increasingly involved in the partnerships needed to realize new urban area development projects. Current projects have been experiencing delays due to the electricity grid not being...

Flow-based market coupling is a critical element of the electricity market in Europe. Transmission System Operators determine the commercial transmission capacity that can be implicitly traded in a zonal day-ahead market. However, this entails a trade-off: higher commercial transmission capacities increase market efficiency, affecting the...

The urban energy transition requires innovative heating and cooling systems, as well as enhanced flexibility in electricity usage. This paper explores the theoretical potential for vertical farms to contribute to the energy transition by supplying residual heat to local district heat networks and flexible electricity usage. A stepped approach...

Electrification of energy end-uses brings an increasing load on electric distribution grids with load peaks that can cause network congestion. However, many new end-uses like electric vehicles, heat pumps, and electrified industrial processes have some flexibility to move their power consumption away from peak times. Congestion management...

Grid congestion, which results from a larger demand for electricity transport than the available transport capacity, is a challenge in the Dutch energy transition. The growing pace of decentralized renewable energy development in less densely populated areas and the electrification of demand leads to congestion, which potentially hinders the...

Strategic traffic assignment (TA) models assess long-term effects of policies on route choices of travelers. To meet stability requirements, current strategic TA models lack modelling of queues. This thesis develops two TA models that include queue modelling whilst satisfying stability requirements along with a method to fuse observed link flows...

In response to the urgent need for sustainable energy solutions and climate change mitigation, international agreements such as the Paris Agreement have been instrumental in advocating reduced greenhouse gas emissions. As the world shifts towards renewable energy sources and electrification, there arises a heightened challenge of increased...

The Dutch energy transition is alive and kicking, however problems arise because of this same transition. Transmission grid congestion is one of them, whereby the grid cannot handle all the extra electricity from wind and solar power, combined with the extra demand due to electrification. Furthermore, business parks have a large potential for...

With the rise of all-electric buildings the load on the electrical grid grows. This could slow down the energy transition and densification of existing neighbourhoods as the current grid is not capable to withstand a higher load. This research gathers literature on different peak shaving techniques to create a clear overview and investigates the...

The integration of variable renewable sources and electrification is straining electricity grids worldwide, resulting in congestion events. This research aims to understand the consequences of unmet electricity demand caused by demand congestion, to support informed decision making. Using a mixed methods approach, the study focuses on the medium...

Situational awareness within port areas is crucial to avoid collisions, navigate efficiently and reduce congestion. Maritime-traffic controllers constantly monitor the situation in the port and intervene when needed. This study proposes a deep learning model that predicts future vessel positions to assist in this process. The model employs a...

Since 2015 available cross-border transmission capacity is determined using flow-based market coupling (FBMC) in the day-ahead electricity markets of Central Western Europe. This paper empirically estimates the effect of introducing FBMC on day-ahead electricity price convergence and cross-border exchange volumes. In the month following the...

Designing a simple, yet representative reaction network for subsequent micro-kinetic analysis is important for limiting the cost of evaluation and ensuring model solvability. This is currently achieved by employing sensitivity analysis over a comprehensive reaction network (CRN) to screen reaction species. However, as a reaction network is...

This paper presents an efficient solution method for the matrix estimation problem using a static capacity constrained traffic assignment (SCCTA) model with residual queues. The solution method allows for inclusion of route queuing delays and congestion patterns besides the traditional link flows and prior demand matrix whilst the...

Our cities are growing at an unprecedented pace. The flexible use of metropolitan infrastructures is the key to maintaining, if not increasing, the current quality of life. The combined use of geo-fence technology and connected vehicles can be the tool to achieve this flexibility. In this paper, we take a first step in the evaluation of the...

Shared automated vehicles (SAV) are expected to benefit the sustainable development of urban regions and alleviate the negative impacts brought by the increasing number of private cars. In this paper, we envision a future scenario where non-pooled SAVs replace private cars and provide public on-demand mobility services to satisfy the mobility...

A road network aims to facilitate the movement of commuters and goods in a safe, economical, and efficient way that contributes to growth in the economy. Road traffic incidents (RTIs), such as crashes, vehicle breakdowns, hazards, etc., are unexpected events that cause severe traffic congestion, unreliability, and pollution. The existing open...

The interest in tradable mobility credits (TMC) is growing steadily. Compared to existing instruments, its cap-and-trade design for the demand side ensures that a limited quantity, e.g., traffic and related emissions, can by design not be exceeded. However, most TMC schemes are market-based financial instruments that can only be successful,...

Increasing peaks from high-power loads such as EVs and heat pumps lead to congestion of electric distribution grids. The inherent flexibility of these loads could be used to resolve congestion events. Possible options for this are smart network tariffs, market-based approaches, and direct control of flexible loads by the network operator. In...
