Due to the growing share of renewable energy sources (RESs) to counter global warming and fossil fuel depletion, the energy sector is electrifying at an increasing pace. However, not all sectors can electrify fully or at an even speed. The industry sector for instance, is heavily reliant on fossil fuelled feedstocks. Power-to-X is named in...

The Indonesian government has announced a national strategy to achieve net-zero emissions through energy transition and justice. However, there are no extensive studies that assess the impact of this strategy and the growing demand in the Kalimantan power system. Therefore, this thesis project aims to conduct a techno-economic and energy justice...

Internal combustion engine (ICE) emissions cause numerous social, environmental, health, and economic issues, including extreme weather or harm to public health. These effects are also experienced in the Chinese Pearl River Delta, where a high-speed, 200-passenger ferry named the Coastal Cruiser 200 (CC-200) uses ICEs to operate. The CC-200's...

Due to global warming, in the construction sector there is aimed for a transition towards the circular economy. The past years, many utility buildings were demolished, consisting of a concrete structure. This results in concrete rubble which is often down- or recycled. For new construction projects, new concrete elements will be produced....

Although competition is a dynamic phenomenon, currently used competition models do not take price dynamics into account, and some models are not even quantitative. This poses a problem for regulators or hedge funds and M&A departments who rely on these models to either quantify price and demand movements, or to determine the cost of...

Capturing and utilizing the emissions of CO<sub>2</sub> has become a method to reduce the occurring emissions from industrial flue gases. One of the methodologies to capture and use the CO<sub>2</sub> is through the CO<sub>2</sub> capture and reduction (CCR) process. This process uses a bi-functional catalyst to capture CO<sub>2</sub> from...

Improved liveability in the neighbourhoods Spangen, Tussendijken and Bospolder is desirable. A more socio-economically diverse population partly contributes to this. Gentrification makes wealthier residents move into the neighbourhoods in a short period of time. Yet, it causes a decrease in affordable housing and a chance of the disappearing of...

Economic growth, especially after the financial crisis of 2008, has been declining in many OECD nations. Declining economic growth has negative effects including a lower rate of productivity growth, stagnating standards of living, increases in income inequality etc. Many economists believe that stagnating fixed business investment is one of the...

Urgent action is needed to decrease maritime emissions. The renewable wind energy sector must also decrease its life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Total GHG emissions from offshore wind turbines are approximately 120% more compared to onshore wind turbines. Moreover, it is estimated that Walk to Work (W2W) vessels are responsible for 3.3...

The purpose of Supply Chain Management (SCM) is to maximize and stabilize the flow of goods through a supply chain. Disruptions to this flow, such as the Bullwhip Effect (BWE), have become increasingly severe and dynamic, challenging current methods for counteracting these disruptions. This thesis develops a systems and control framework for...

The world is moving towards sustainability and there is immense pressure on Aerospace Industry to reduce its emissions to contribute to a carbon-neutral world. However, maturing gas turbine technology is a big bottleneck towards this goal and hence, this project focuses on the technical and economic feasibility of a new type of propulsion system...

In this thesis, an economic-engineering model of the ripple effect in the housing market is put forward. The ripple effect in the housing market is modeled by integrating into one model the local price dynamics of the rental market, the spatial price dynamics between local rental markets, and the valuation of real estate. Such a model is lacking...

The world around us is developing constantly. In terms of architecture and urban development, China is unprecedented. In a way, the sheer speed and volume of construction is a phenomenon, becoming characteristic for Chinese developments. Like all matter, this in itself is neither necessarily positive of negative. However, such dialogue becomes...

The green-hydrogen supply chain is part of the new energy business and will be operating in the new-energy markets. The new-energy markets are markets with volatile prices, and the prices are expected to become even more volatile in the future. A continuous-time model of the price and product flow dynamics is needed to quantify the value...

Urbanization, modernization, and the growth of the population put severe pressure on the current Dutch building stock. Inner-city developments in Dutch cities are limiteddue to the high density of the urban fabric. Therefore, the focus of urban transformation gradually moved from the inner-city developments to the periphery of the city. These...

To match supply from intermittent renewable energy sources (RES) with demand, it is proposed in literature to introduce flexibility in the electricity market of the future. Flexibility can be provided by energy storage, demand response and cross-border transmission. In this thesis flexibility is modeled explicitly through the price mechanism of...

In the mission to slow down global warming, the replacement of fossil fuels by renewable energy resources is key. A tipping point in the adoption of renewable energy resources is notable, as they are becoming economically more viable. Offshore wind energy is considered essential in realizing the greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. However...

The effects of climate change are felt all around the world. An increased sea level goes hand in hand with an increased risk of flooding. To combat this, the coastlines must be reinforced to withstand future sea levels. However, repeatedly reinforcing coastlines to keep up with the sea level rise (SLR) could prove extremely costly. An...
