With a fast growing world population, the lack of fresh water is one of the world’s biggest future concerns. Water stress can lead to conflicts, holds back economic growth and has a major impact on human health. Nowadays, more and more countries that lack fresh water sources are using the saline water from the oceans and desalinate it to produce...

Wind Power Producers (WPP) incur a negative result through mandatory participation on the balancing market. This study analyzes the performance of multiple improved offering strategies for a WPP offering both on the day-ahead market and the balancing market. It does so on revenue, as well as its impact on the grid and electricity market as a...

The production of renewable energy is steadily going up, and as a result of the (almost) zero-marginal cost renewables, the marginal cost based electricity prices go down. While the need for backup generation increases due to the fluctuating availability of renewable energy, the generation units that supply electricity during demand peaks see...

Wind farms are currently built in the North Sea in the Netherlands. The grid connecting the off-shore wind farm to the main-land distribution grid must be protected against short-circuits and other electrical disturbances. In this project is studied if electrical protection of a grid is suitable for grids connecting renewable energy sources to...

A highly accurate model is presented that predicts boundary layer flashback (BLF) for lean premixed hydrogen combustion. In contrast to existing models, that fail for lean hydrogen mixtures, the present model includes the effect of flame instabilities. The model is applied to study the effect of burner geometry on flashback tendency. A diverging...

The shifting of the European countries, including the Netherlands, towards an electricity production dominated by renewable energy sources to be (nearly 70%) by mid-century will have a significant impact on the frequency performance of electric networks. This would cause the level of grid inertia to be considerably reduced. From this perspective...

More than ever, there is a growing importance of renewable energy technology (RET) as a part of the global energy source. With the increasing need of a cleaner energy and abundance incentives from the government, the evolution of innovating firms who are developing radical innovations related to RET products has been expanding, especially in the...

Increasing urbanization and climate change are encouraging architects and engineers to use water as building land, adopting floating structures as a favorable solution. Floating architecture not only could help coastline cities to develop through seas and face sea level rise, but presents many other positive aspects among which particular...

Zero Emission Fuels B.V. develops a standalone System that produces renewable methanol from air and sunlight. In this thesis the steady-state model of this System is replaced with a Simulation Tool that can predict its behaviour for every minute of a year. The goal is to verify how technical design parameters influence methanol production and to...

National policies that seek to stimulate the energy transition require attention with the requirement for generation sources that can compensate for moments when wind and solar plants are not available. Electricity supply needs to adjust to demand in real-time, at least until energy storage becomes commercially viable, otherwise the energy...

Waterborn transport currently runs on diesel driven Internal Combustion Engines
(ICE). To reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions an option is to shift towards
alternative fuels, like alcohols. This thesis focusses on methanol in ICEs. The
combustion of methanol in ICEs can be done in numerous manners, where fuel
altering,...

In a socio –technical system, such as the energy system, a network of actors is responsible for developing, monitoring and managing the technical system bounded by institutions on different levels. The network of actors is the social dimension, where the technical system is the technical dimension of the socio -technical system. The development...

In the future, two enormous challenges face humanity: decreasing the carbon emissions and supporting the growing energy demands in the developing regions of the world. These challenges highlight the need for a greater amount of implementation of renewable energy projects. This thesis tackles one such potential project, the modeling of a tidal...

In this research study, a backcasting analysis has been conducted on the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago with the aim of establishing a sustainable energy supply by the year 2040. Quist backcasting framework, due to it's flexible nature has been used as the main skeleton for this research. As a part of the study, 8 islands with significant...

What are the national and provincial economic potentials of ocean thermal energy conversion in relation to the provincial electricity demand fulfilment in Indonesia? When we are talking about the economic potential of OTEC in Indonesia, we are talking about potential as a result of different possible configurations. On the national level,...

The intermittent nature of renewable energy sources makes it difficult for electric utility companies to effectively implement these technologies in the power grid due to mismatches between supply and demand. Solid oxide cells are electrochemical devices that are receiving a lot attention as an effective power grid balancing technology, given...

The omnipresence of the aging mass-housing estates in Europe has created a new frontier for innovative approaches in architecture, particularly in the architecture of renovation. This new movement has the capacity to address two major aspects of contemporary architecture: the role of architects in catering for sustainable development (ecological...

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...

The rapid growth of the PV industry has meant that prices have been falling steeply, making them more accessible for a wider range of applications. The combined use of noise barriers as energy generating facilities, usually coined as PVNBs has been occurring since the late 80’s. It has not realised wide spread implementation, remaining mostly in...

Spatial impact of the energy transition is a subject that has not been studied extensively as of now. Developing a spatial plan for a sustainable energy system in an early phase will provide insight in practical and spatial implications that are related to these systems. This is especially relevant in existing neighbourhoods, where the existing...
