In the realm of machine learning (ML), the need for efficiency in training processes is paramount. The conventional first step in an ML workflow involves collecting data from various sources and merging them into a single table, a process known as materialization, which can introduce inefficiencies caused by redundant data. Factorized ML strives...

The Netherlands aims to have a carbon-neutral energy system by 2050. Hydrogen is seen as an important energy carrier that can contribute to this transition. Not only can hydrogen potentially decarbonise industry, transportation, and possibly agriculture and the built environment, but it can also be used to store electricity for longer periods....

This thesis explores sustainable and economically viable decarbonization pathways for the European ammonia industry. Through literature reviews, expert interviews, and detailed analyses, it addresses the industry's need to transition while maintaining competitiveness. Findings suggest that options like Autothermal Reforming (ATR) with Carbon...

When considering air quality, notably in South America, it seems that we are falling behind more developed regions in exacerbating the issue. This shortfall serves not just as observation, but as a warning, as air quality problems here are rapidly escalating. Nevertheless, by examining how other countries have addressed similar issues, we can...

With the ever so rapid transition towards renewable energy, the offshore electricity transmission system has to expand. Towards 2050, a meshed offshore network is seen as a cost-effective solution to bring electricity to shore. Although there is no "one size fits all", a Cross-Border Cost Allocation procedure is the designated procedure to...

Gaining insights into anticipated future expenses is essential for both the planning and construction phases of a project. A significant factor in future costs, particularly over extended periods, is the variability of material and labor prices. the change in costs over time, known as ’cost escalation,’ has been the focus of numerous research...

To reduce global warming the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) must be net zero in 2050, Paris agreement. In the Netherlands the building sector is responsible for 38% of total GHG emissions, 27% being operational carbon (related to energy use) and 11% embodied carbon (related to the use of materials). A large portion of the GHG emissions in...

Virtualized Radio Access Networks (vRANs) are fully configurable and can be implemented at a low cost over commodity platforms to enable network management flexibility. In this paper, a novel vRAN reconfiguration problem is formulated to jointly reconfigure the functional splits of the base stations (BSs), locations of the virtualized central...

The rising demand for electric vehicles (EVs) in the face of limited grid capacity encourages the development and implementation of smart charging (SC) algorithms. Experimental validation plays a pivotal role in advancing this field. This article formulates a hierarchical mixed integer programming EV SC algorithm designed for low voltage (LV)...

Flooding is expected to increase due to climate change, urbanisation, and land use change. To address this issue, Nature-Based Solutions (NBSs) are often adopted as innovative and sustainable flood risk management methods. Besides the flood risk reduction benefits, NBSs offer co-benefits for the environment and society. However, these co...

Micro, Small, and Medium Business (MSMEs) are vital to the Indonesian economic development, and the government is focusing on this sector for post-pandemic recovery. There is an emphasis on infrastructure such as urban green spaces, or Ruang Terbuka Hijau (RTH). RTHs have untapped potential as centers for agricultural and processing MSMEs....

Net-zero energy system configurations can be met in numerous ways, implying diverse economic effects. However, what is usually ignored in techno-economic and economy-wide analysis are the distinct social-political drivers and barriers, which might constrain certain elements of future energy systems. We thus apply a model ensemble that defines...

Climate change and geopolitical risks call for the rapid transformation of electricity systems worldwide, with Europe at the forefront. Wind and solar are the lowest cost, lowest risk, and cleanest energy sources, but their variability poses integration challenges. Combining both technologies and integrating regions with dissimilar generation...

Sensor data and agro-hydrological modeling have been combined to improve irrigation management. Crop water models simulating crop growth and production in response to the soil-water environment need to be parsimonious in terms of structure, inputs and parameters to be applied in data scarce regions. Irrigation management using soil moisture...

Green ammonia is poised to be a key part in the hydrogen economy. This paper discusses green ammonia supply chains with a focus on market structures. The architecture of upstream and downstream supply chains is explored. Market structure prototypes in different stages are explored based on transaction cost economics and lessons from the...

We study the problem of finding statistically distinct plans for stochastic task assignment problems such as online multi-robot pickup and delivery (MRPD) when facing multiple competing objectives. In many real-world settings robot fleets do not only need to fulfil delivery requests, but also have to consider auxiliary objectives such as...

The recent spate of natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods destroyed buildings and caused loss of lives. Many times, the loss of life is attributed to slow response and not being able to reach the survivors. In such scenarios, the staggering number of deaths in the aftermath of a disaster can be reduced if information about survivors...

Despite persistent housing affordability issues, energy policy and housing renovation are usually investigated separately from housing costs other than energy. Researchers have examined the financial viability of renovation attending to building conditions and the socio-economic characteristics of their occupants. However, the distributional...

Electric vehicle (EV) users who aim to become flexibility providers face a tradeoff between staying in control of charging and minimizing their electricity costs. The common practice is to charge immediately after plugging in and use more electricity than necessary. Changing this can increase the EV’s flexibility potential and reduce...
