Organizational and political responses to strategic surprises such as the credit crunch in 2008 and the pandemic in 2020 are increasingly reliant on scientific insights. As a result, the accuracy of scientific models has become more critical, and models have become more complex to capture the real-world phenomena as best as they can. So much,...

In the built environment, the continuous growth and expansion of urban areas worldwide have become alarming. The built environment is continuously developing in an unsustainable manner, and in the mid-term future, resources will be scarce if practices are not changed. Therefore, new building materials and methods need to be implemented to...

This thesis looks into the link between the Volkswagen emission scandal, or dieselgate, and the strong rise of electric vehicles in the years following that event. In order to investigate this, a framework is build that describes the process of an innovation (the electric vehicle), taking over from an incumbent technology (fossil fuel cars), in...

Fostering green innovation diffusion is one of the goals of the European Green Deal, European Commission's ambitious plan of eliminating greenhouse emissions in the European Union by 2050. This study approaches diffusion of green innovation through the lens of evolutionary economics by considering concepts like path-dependency and technology...

Access to clean energy has long been neglected within the humanitarian agenda. As a result, refugees are often locked into unsustainable and risky energy practices, especially in low-income countries. This study focuses on market-based interventions to deliver clean cooking fuels in refugee camps in protracted crises. The outcomes of market...

This study reviews Reverse Innovation (RI) literature by analysing the conceptual, intellectual and social structure of the field. Furthermore, it proposes a comprehensive view of the structural associations amongst RI influencing factors, drivers, antecedents and practices. Bibliometrix R-package and VOSViewer software were used to conduct a...

The research studies the Dutch meat substitution sector from an innovation perspective by applying theories from the field of sustainability transition studies: functions of innovation systems theory and multilevel perspective. This is done in order to gain in-depth knowledge on how the development of the Dutch meat substitute innovations system...

Climate change and environmental problems are of major concern to governments, organisations, and consumers. This stresses the need for a transition towards clean renewable energy systems. To enable the diffusion of cleaner energy technology it is not enough to just have supportive policies in place. The challenge is to ensure that consumers...

This paper presents a novel simulation model that shows the dynamic and complex nature of the innovation system of vehicle automation in a quantitative way. The model simulates the innovation diffusion of automated vehicles (AVs) on the long-term. It looks at the system of AVs from a functional perspective and therefore categorizes this...

Simulation modeling is useful to gain insights into driving mechanisms of diffusion of innovations. This study aims to introduce automation to make identification of such mechanisms with agent-based simulation modeling less costly in time and labor. We present a novel automation procedure in which the generation of diffusion models is automated....

Agent-based modeling is useful to simulate the human role in socio-technical systems. Thereby, the complexity of such systems can be captured. For instance, it has shown to be useful at simulating innovation in socio-technical systems. We develop a next step in which laborious model building is automated. We present a working example on...

This research presents a novel simulation model that shows the dynamic and complex nature of the innovation system of vehicle automation in a quantitative way. The model looks at the system of automated vehicles from a functional perspective and therefore categorizes vehicle automation into six different levels. Each level is represented by its...

Heating behavior of households is key for reducing domestic energy demand and mitigating climate change. Recently, various technical devices have been developed, providing households with feedback on their heating behavior and supporting energy conservation behavior. The impact of such devices on overall energy consumption depends on (1) the...

Diffusion of renewable technologies are in the policy makers’ minds since the 1970s to deal with depleting resources and finding solutions to environmental concerns. Therefore, understanding the mechanisms behind a diffusion process becomes quite important for policy makers to manage the process effectively. A new understanding of innovation...

Mlecnik, E. (author)
This study examines opportunities for the emergence of SME networks regarding highly energy-efficient housing, as well as the barriers they face. A theoretical innovation diffusion model is developed from the point-of-view of social and environmental entrepreneurship and sustainable consumption. The qualitative analysis reflects key elements...

For newly built houses and renovations European and national ambitions prescribe increasing levels of energy performances, even including achieving the passive house standard, net zero energy or carbon neutral houses. For highly energy-efficient renovation, project information from first demonstration projects is now becoming available. This...

The chemical industry is considered as one of the most important sectors from an environmental point of view. As a result, many chemical companies have been at the forefront of both using innovative technologies and up-to-date environmental management practices. However, the sector faces an ever increasing pressure from its stakeholders and...
