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...

Batteries play a vital role in the ongoing energy transition, driving the demand for safer, energy denser and higher performing energy storage solutions. This has propelled research of solid-state batteries. Halide electrolytes, with high ionic conductivities and high oxidation stabilities, have attracted tremendous interest. Currently, the main...

Prisons serve as amplifiers of Tuberculosis (TB) transmission due to overpopulation, lack of hygiene, and bad ventilation [Mabud et al., 2019] [Baussano et al., 2010]. The risk of TB is elevated during and after incarceration, only returning to the general population’s risk seven years after liberation. This is an indication that formerly...

This report investigates the potential use of Phase Change Material (PCM) technology in poorly insulated lightweight homes in the Netherlands. The aim is to develop a cost-effective and easy-to-install PCM product that can decrease energy consumption through passive heating and cooling. The proposed design involves a multi-layer curtain system...

Chemical plants face safety hazards and security threats that may induce catastrophic scenarios. Safety and security barriers are employed widely to protect chemical plants from accidental and intentional undesired events and mitigate consequences. Managing safety and security barriers effectively and economically is a research topic with...

In this work, dynamic characterization of a simply supported beam is carried out during different steps in a failure load test. The main goal of this work is to evaluate the evolution of the structural dynamic parameters of the beam with different status of damage. Real-scale prestressed concrete beams are tested to investigate its shear...

The brine generated from desalination is a threat to the environment, and its disposal has been a great challenge. A new concept Zero liquid discharge (ZLD) can minimize the environmental impact of brine. However, the high costs for construction and running of a ZLD plant limits its growth in desalination market. Therefore, a new strategy...

As liquid bulk vessels are berthed in ports, auxiliary engines generate the electrical power demand, which emissions have a negative effect on the environment and local air quality in ports. Shore power is an effective solution for this problem. However, the large costs of implementing shore power and the absence of a technical safe design...

The 3D-digitisation of precious cultural heritage artifacts is highly important for historical preservation purposes. Doing so can help mitigate against events such as tourism damage, natural disasters, and war. It also enables access to three-dimensional data for researchers of all disciplines all around the globe to study these artifacts at...

This research aims to determine the cost effectiveness of yacht emission reducing ret options through marginal abatement cost curves. A broad selection of five refit options is evaluated and implemented in the created tool. Using multiple scenarios by fluctuating fuel price and the implementation of hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), the effect...

To support Van Oord’s path towards a low-emission future fleet, this thesis has focused on the technical, environmental and economic impact of a methanol hybrid power plant design for new-build offshore working vessels (OWVs). These Dynamic-Positioning (DP) vessels are known for their large and dynamic power plants and have to limit their NOx...

Nature-based solutions (NBS) for hydro-meteorological risks (HMRs) reduction and management are becoming increasingly popular, but challenges such as the lack of well-recognised standard methodologies to evaluate their performance and upscale their implementation remain. We systematically evaluate the current state-of-the art on the models...

Reduction of energy consumption and to increase its generation is necessary, as the population lives in urban settlements consume three-quarters of global resources, and these numbers are continually growing. Building-integrated photovoltaic panels (BIPV) which would assist for the resolution of the problem can be applied by replacing the façade...

Operation and maintenance (O&M) costs account for a large proportion of the total costs for offshore wind energy. Performing a reasonable maintenance strategy is an effective approach to reduce O&M costs and gain more profits. In this paper, an opportunistic maintenance strategy for offshore wind turbine systems considering...
