With the Paris climate accords signed in 2016, most countries have committed themselves to ambitious climate targets during the next decades. One of these targets is a dramatic increase in the overall energy portfolio's market share of renewable energies. This increase in renewable market share will, for a large part, consist of newly built...

Today's mobile devices powered by batteries have kept feeding users endless entertainment and convenience, whereas always accompanied by some unfavorable experiences that is 'Always have to recharge'. The puzzle of battery life has been an inevitable limitation that could probably degrade user experience, even though smartphones, smart homes,...

In this thesis, I develop and evaluate a demand-side approach to transition from an intermittent to a continuous water supply using a district metered areas approach in Accra, Ghana, an urban metroplex of 4.0 million persons in western Africa. Intermittent water supply (IWS) is inherently inefficient. These systems foment health hazards and are...

The building sector uses 40% of the primary energy worldwide. Energy demand in a non-residential existing building is rising due to higher comfort conditions, population growth and the enhancement of the building services. On the other hand, renewable energy technologies are every time more accessible for the built environment, especially the...

In the energy transition the expansion of the amount of renewable energy resources requires new methods for the design of energy systems. To deal with intermittent energy production, different energy technologies and solutions are in development. Hydrogen is a main candidate for this goal. Using Fuel Cell or Battery Electric Vehicles as flexible...

Energy harvesting and battery-free sensing devices show great promise for revolutionizing computing in every known area while expanding to non-conventional use-cases. The promise of cheap, dense, and ubiquitous sensing technology brings new applications for the Internet of Things. However, the future programming model is blurry and complex. With...

The Netherlands policy on electricity steers towards a carbon neutral power generation in 2050. Among<br/>the studies that focus on long term power system research, none use the starting point of a 100%<br/>renewable power system in 2050. It is unknown if such a system is technically feasible given the<br/>variability of wind and solar. The...

Hylkema, Bouke (author)
Intermittent generation behaviour of wind and solar power units requires Transmission System Operators (TSOs) to activate balancing power to maintain a stable grid frequency. With the current strong growth in installed renewable energy capacity in The Netherlands, it is therefore expected that the volumes of activated balancing power will grow...

Tidal inlet systems are found all over the world. These highly dynamic coastal features can be classified into three main types wave-dominated, tide-dominated or river-dominated tidal inlet systems. A tidal inlet is described as an opening in the shoreline that provides a connection between the ocean and a bay and is maintained by tidal currents...

The need for a more resource-efficient and low-carbon electricity sector has boosted the integration of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in power systems, especially of wind and solar energy. However, their intermittent output hinders the match of electricity demand and supply which is required for the smooth operation of the electricity grid....
