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...

We formulate for the first time the economic dispatch problem among prosumers in an integrated electrical and gas distribution system (IEGDS) as a game equilibrium problem. Specifically, by approximating the nonlinear gas-flow equations either with a mixed-integer second-order cone (MISOC) or a piecewise affine (PWA) model and by assuming...

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...

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)...

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...

Indonesia has committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2060, with emphasis on the electricity sector eliminating harmful gas emissions by that year. Using the Balmorel energy model, this study simulated the impact of the target on optimal capacity expansion, electricity production mix, emissions, and electricity supply costs across 230...

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...

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...

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...

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...

In order to fulfill the climate commitments outlined in the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, there is a pressing need to substantially reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions worldwide. Among these GHG emissions, CO2 contributes for 75% of the total Greenhouse Gas emissions. The transport sector accounts for 22% of these CO2 emissions. Despite the...

As part of the Dutch government’s ambitions to realise significant offshore wind energy capacity (70 gigawatts (GW) by 2050), the Port of Rotterdam is to become a hydrogen hub for North-Western Europe. To achieve this, it is expected that around 20 megatonnes (Mt) of hydrogen could be throughput in the Port of Rotterdam, out of which 2 Mt will...

Short-haul flights, known for their high carbon intensity relative to distance, are increasingly challenged by high-speed rail (HSR), a viable and environmentally friendly alternative. This study develops a model adapting the “Transit Network Design and Frequency Setting Problem” to high-speed rail, focusing on optimizing existing networks...

This research addresses the environmental impact of foundations in lightweight housing units, focusing on BAM's timber house concept, FLOW. While the engineered timber superstructure is environmentally conscious, the foundation's contribution is often overlooked. The study aims to minimise the Environmental Cost Indicator (ECI) of FLOW houses by...

This research proposes a new concept of electric bus with adjustable interior modules. By installing different modules, it can adjust both its internal layout and battery capacity spontaneously to make itself resemble an electric city bus or an electric regional bus when it is needed. It makes use of difference between peak times of regional...
