Notions, such as leverage points, sensitive interventions, social tipping points, transformational tipping points, and positive tipping points, are increasingly attracting attention within sustainability science. However, they are also creating confusion and unresolved questions about how to apply these concepts when dealing with urgent...

Increase in wind- and solar parks complicate grid stability due to their deterministic behaviour. ENTSO-E established requirements for generators for grid connection in Europe. A requirement is to have active- and reactive power control that implements a power setpoint given by the transmission system operator. This thesis describes the design...

Recent advances in photoelectrochemical redox flow cells, such as solar redox flow batteries, have received much attention as an alternative integrated technology for simultaneous conversion and storage of solar energy. Theoretically, it has been reported that even single- photon devices can demonstrate unbiased photo-charging with high solar-to...

Climate mitigation measures are integrated in various governmental and commercial initiatives. The sector of electrification and energy is no exception to this. For remote island communities however, the access to reliable and affordable electricity comes with additional difficulties. The effects of climate change, energy dependency and...

The Dutch government has set out to largely reach reductions in carbon emissions in the electricity sector with the utilization of offshore wind energy. Due to the intermittency of wind energy this poses new problems and challenges for the future electricity system in the Netherlands. The objective of this report is to identify the challenges...

Generation of feasible and optimal reference trajectories is crucial in tracking Nonlinear Model Predictive Control. Especially, for stability and optimality in presence of a time varying parameter, adaptation of the tracking trajectory has to be implemented. General approaches are real-time generation of trajectories or switching between a...

Car as Power Plant (CaPP) neighborhoods are an innovative approach to achieve sustainable, self-sufficient local energy systems. A key component of CaPP systems is a fleet of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), which provides mobility but also operates as decentralized power plants. The CaPP approach still requires proof of concept, this is...

This paper explores the potential political implications of the geographic and technical characteristics of renewable energy systems. This is done through a thought experiment that imagines a purely renewable based energy system, keeping all else equal. We start by noting that all countries have access to some form of renewable energy, though...

Renewable energy sources are often hailed as the panacea for a plethora of challenges associated with the use of fossil fuels. Partly for good reasons; while the utilization of renewables diminishes energy scarcity and lowers various kinds of pollution, their potential to address energy related geopolitical tensions among producer, consumer, and...

The reliable operation of energy infrastructures is more than just a technical matter. It is also dependent upon the organizational structure that enables and constrains entities in their management of operations. Yet this lesson seems forgotten in our planning of future renewable energy systems. There, focus is on technical development, market...

In Africa, as a developing region, the introduction of sustainable energy presents an opportunity to provide a large number of people with a better source of energy resulting in a better quality of life while reducing the impact of global warming. Electricity is not available to many communities in Africa because the large capital investment...
