The Dutch container glass industry is an energy- and capital-intensive industry which accounts for about 350 kt of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on an annual basis. The fluctuating energy prices during the past decades as well as the implementation of the European Emission trading scheme (ETS) are pushing towards the deep decarbonisation of...

This study has been performed in cooperation with TNO and set out to analyze the robustness of Dutch energy transition policies under deep uncertainty for the scope of the built environment sector. Open data is gathered which is used in a System Dynamics model to allow exploration under deep uncertainty. The Adaptive Robust Design methodology...

Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) are aiming to shed light on the cost-benefit of climate mitigations. However, current IAMs are depicted with a wide range of weaknesses. Next, to questionable assumptions of model functions, such as the damage function, IAMs are inadequate at addressing deeply uncertain parameters, such as the equilibrium...

Flood risk management is the process of analysing, assessing and (if required) reducing flood risks, in terms of economic costs and affected population or loss of life. The analysis is performed through a probabilistic approach in which the factors are represented by a probability distribution function to address uncertainties. However, relevant...

Humanitarians and global health actors come to the aid of many people every year, with the aim of preventing disease, increasing wellbeing, and providing (medical) aid to those suffering from disease. One of the contexts in which they operate is that of an epidemic. An epidemic is dynamic by nature and provides a complex and evolving environment...

There are several prevailing issues regarding major altered states of extreme weather events. For instance, storm surges, sea-level rise, and droughts have all resulted in many regions left with critical systems and interdependencies exposed. The impact and risk of modern disasters have caused substantial adverse socio-economic impacts by...

Methods for decision support in the context of deep uncertainty have been gaining interest in the context of complex and adaptive problems that are characterized by “tipping point” behaviours. Unlike a traditional “predict-then-act” methods, which determine policies based on specific predictions of future behaviour, these decision support...

This research has been aimed at identifying internally consistent and plausible narratives on the pathways of society’s response to climate change. In this research, society’s response to climate change has been interpreted as the emergence of climate change mitigation action by society. Studying society’s response to climate change is hampered...

The current European Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) in combination with other renewable electricity (RES-E) support schemes such as a premium feed-in tariff (FIT) or tradable green certificates system (TGC) do not guarantee a carbon neutral power sector in 2050. This study shows that many plausible high carbon emissions futures exist when no...

This research focuses on the effects demographic aging has on the welfare state in The Netherlands. It aims on providing an overview of the welfare state system and analyzing this system taking into account deep uncertainty that exists within the system. This is done by using a combination of Exploratory System Dynamics and Exploratory Modeling...

This thesis discusses several solutions to develop the use of climate scenarios in climate adaptation in Dutch water management. The solutions consist of: a different representation of uncertainty in the scenarios, more guidance on the use of climate scenarios and organizational changes in the making and publication of scenarios. The first two...
