As the effects of climate change are more and more materializing around the globe it is ever more important to reduce our reliance on a fossil fuel based energy system. When coupling this to an ongoing trend of urbanization in many places across the world, the energy systems of our cities become of particular interest. However, the transition...

The need for improved energy security in Nigeria cannot be over-emphasized. Currently, energy security is rather poor, while access to energy is fundamental to socio-economic development and poverty alleviation. Renewable energy could potentially contribute to resolving this because renewable sources such as solar radiation are more available...

Energy communities are decentralized socio-technical systems where energy is jointly generated and distributed among a community of households locally. As the energy that is shared among the community is commonly electricity, the energy community's literature is dominated by electricity-systems and mostly neglects collective thermal energy as an...

Energy communities are gaining momentum in the context of the energy transition. Given the distributed and collective action nature of energy communities, energy security of these local energy systems is more than just security of supply and related to issues such as affordability and acceptability of energy to members of the community. We build...

The current energy infrastructure, energy policy, and the business environment are designed to support the conventional power system. Hence, it is crucial to create a conducive business environment to accelerate the deployment and power generation through solar PV and wind power. This research has adapted the theory of the business environment...

Bazaiou, Angeliki (author)
The subject of this graduation project is the energy transition within urban environments. This is pursued through, firstly, gaining an understanding of the fossil dependency and how this has affected our cities and practices. In order to overturn this effect and open the way for the urban energy transition, urban design needs to become more...

Developments in the field of renewable energy technologies have lead to low energy cost in areas with specific characteristics. In the Middle East solar power plants are built for prices around 3 cent per kilowatt-hour and bids below 3 cent have been placed. In Europe wind energy is the second largest source of renewable energy after biomass....

Due to the liberalisation of the European Union's (EU) electricity sector, stakeholders' roles and responsibilities in local energy planning and implementation are not well-defined in legislation anymore. To investigate what local energy planning and implementation processes look like in the post-liberalisation era we conduct a systematic...

A paradigm shift has taken place in energy markets and energy policy. Developments like diffusion of renewable energy technologies and institutional restructuring have made local energy planning in Europe more complex and call for new forms of governance for energy provision at the local level. Through a systematic literature review we addressed...

Laparidou, K. (author)
In March 2007, the European Commission presented the “Renewable Energy Roadmap”, a document establishing a binding target for all European Union’s Member States to increase their renewable energy consumption rates from sources such as wind, solar, hydro or biomass. The overall value (for all EU Members) was set at 20 percent and should be...
