Solar energy is an abundant, scalable, and clean source of energy. With an exponential drop in prices of PV modules, more and more rooftop photovoltaic (PV) systems are being installed worldwide. Since these small-scale PV systems do not use expensive sensors, it is difficult to detect malfunctions for these systems. This could lead to lower...

Households with children have been suggested to play a key role in ethnic residential segregation. One possible mechanism is that school district boundaries affect their segregation patterns, but direct evidence on this is scarce. This study investigates the role of school catchment areas for ethnic residential segregation among different...

Over half of all residential buildings in the Netherlands are owner-occupied. In this study, the influence of behavioural factors on individual decisions toward energy efficiency renovations (EERs) was investigated. This study focused on contextual (e.g. building characteristics), personal (e.g. awareness of energy consumption), and...
