Urbanisation has increased the worlds' cities populations and influenced the living conditions within these cities. Temperatures rise, the air becomes more polluted and noise levels increase. It has been proven that types of vegetation such as plants and trees can reduce the negative effects of urbanisation by for instance cooling cities,...

As data centers worldwide consume more power than ever, lowering the energy consumption of software is increasingly important. Software energy testing is often unclear due to a lack of comparable baselines. In this paper, we look at the use of regression testing to alleviate some of the struggles with energy testing. We introduce E-Compare, a...

The European Union aims to reduce its emissions by 55% in 2030 compared to 1990 levels, requiring massive investment in the economy and society. Knowing the level of investment to be made is key to understanding the macroeconomic impact of the transition, creating investment policies and prioritizing sectors.  However, in the transport...

As the Netherlands seeks to transition to sustainable heavy-duty freight transportation to meet the EU’s CO2 neutrality targets by 2050, exploring alternative clean energy options becomes essential. This study examines the integration of green hydrogen within the heavy-duty truck (HDT) sector in the Netherlands, emphasizing the need for a robust...

Moss covered surfaces are a promising way to mitigate the urban heat island effect. A layer of moss on a building’s façade reduces heat absorption during summer, hence passively cooling the building and its surroundings. The startup Respyre wants to offer such moss layers as a commercial product. A bio-gel mixed with moss fragments is sprayed on...

Edge AI is an architectural deployment tactic that brings AI models closer to the user and data, relieving internet bandwidth usage and providing low latency and privacy. It remains unclear how this tactic performs at scale, since the distribution overhead could impact the total energy consumption. We identify four architectural scalability...

The internet is a system that was introduced over 30 years ago and has taken over the world since then. Connecting over 5 billion people is possible thanks to the global scale that the internet operates at. While the advantages are unmistakable, we must also acknowledge that the internet is a large contributor to the emission of greenhouse...

This doctoral thesis critically examines green space characteristics and their proximity to residents in their ability to help reduce the global disease burden of non-communicable diseases. By dissecting three pivotal pathways of theorized green space health effects through increased physical activity, increased social cohesion, and reduced air...

This thesis aims to investigate the impact of green architecture features on the well-being of children and staff in Dutch preschools, addressing a gap in previous research. It considers six forms of well-being: physical, emotional, environmental, financial, personal development, and work-life balance. Seven green architecture features are...

Oil exploitation of tight reservoirs has gained significant importance lately. Some researchers have defined tight reservoirs as those characterized with permeability lower than 0.1 mD. However, permeability is an absolute value, and tight reservoirs have complex pore systems that require a detailed geological and petrophysical rock...

The digital world is evolving toward representing - and serving the interconnection of - natural persons. Instead of depending on the intrastructure of Big Tech companies and governments, users can cooperate and use their hardware to form public infrastructure. Instead of existing by virtue of a reference in some institution's database, users...

Within the energy transition, green hydrogen stands as a key solution for decarbonizing sectors where direct electrification is not viable. This thesis focuses on the competitive landscape of hydrogen production in North-Western Europe, addressing the technological and geographical competition of locally produced green hydrogen. This research...

Personal weather station (PWS) networks have the potential to supply precipitation data at high spatial and temporal resolution for urban hydrological modeling. Past research has shown promising results on the quality of PWS data, for example from Netatmo gauges, but studies on other PWS brands are limited. This thesis assesses the quality of...

The consequences of climate change are becoming more and more visible. A significant cause of this is CO2 emissions; the shipping sector is responsible for 3% of global CO2 emissions. As a result, the Fourth IMO GHG Study 2020 presents pathways to reduce the GHG emission of the shipping industry by 50% by 2050. Recent IMO goals have overtaken...

This thesis presents a novel approach to the pricing of green bonds, a growing segment in financial markets with an emphasis on environmental sustainability. Unlike traditional financial instruments, green bonds uniquely incorporate environmental considerations, particularly carbon price (c_t), along with traditional factors like the short rate ...

The construction industry is responsible for the emitting carbon, nitrogen, and particulate matter, which is harmful to the environment and contributes to global warming. Municipalities in the Netherlands plan to reduce emissions in inner-city developments to zero before 2030, for which a transformation of the already...

The objective of this study is to generate insights into the application of the reliability of a W2H system and its impact on the techno-economic performance. This involves examining the case of a single system to analyse on a micro-level the underlying conditions affecting performance, as well as exploring W2H farms to observe performance and...

Without realising it, a building can have a lot of impact on user health. Using literature studies and interviews in two case studies, we looked at how physical elements in a building affect the user's experience. These physical elements are nature, material, air, light, dimensions, smell, sound and temperature. These interviews took place in...
