Thomson, Owen (author)
Within the energy transition, green hydrogen stands as a key solution for decarbonizing sectors where direct electrification is not viable. This thesis focuses on the competitive landscape of hydrogen production in North-Western Europe, addressing the technological and geographical competition of locally produced green hydrogen. This research...

District heating systems are considered a feasible heating alternative to replace natural gas to mitigate emissions in cities. However, urban transitions are very complex because energy systems often operate in densely populated areas, which gives rise to all kinds of interdependencies in cities. These interdependencies can result in...

Within our Distributed and Interactive Systems research group, we focus on affective haptics, where we design and develop systems that can enhance human emotional states through the sense of touch. Such artificial haptic sensations can potentially augment and enhance our mind, body, and (virtual) social connections. In three works—voice...

Serious Games can be used for many purposes, including studying complex, socio-technical systems. They are claimed to provide new opportunities by bringing different knowledge and fields of expertise to the table. Combined with simulations that allow for observation of the evolving infrastructure under deeply uncertain conditions, they have the...

All over the world, cities are attempting to emit less carbon to limit the possibly detrimental effects of human-induced climate change. One way to limit carbon emissions is by reducing fossil fuel car use and transitioning to forms of low-carbon mobility. Electric vehicles (EVs) are an exponentially popular low-carbon transport solution,...

A pressure ulcer (PU) is defined as localised damage to the skin and/or underlying tissue, as a result of pressure or pressure in combination with shear. Despite the fact that pressure ulcers have received a lot of attention recently in hospitals and long-term care homes, they still form a major issue. The ErasmusMC is one of the hospitals with...

In the face of the current environmental crisis led by the extended use of fossil fuels to cover society’s energy needs, sustainability objectives have been defined around the world. In the European Union, the European Green Deal has emerged as a leading guideline for its member states to achieve energy neutrality by 2050. The Netherlands has...

Cities are increasingly recognized as potential motors of sustainability transitions. These transitions build on existing as well as new infrastructures, and these infrastructures mutually influence each other in many ways, a phenomenon known as infrastructure interdependencies. These infrastructure interdependencies have significant...

Rapid global urbanization, urban renewal and changes in people's lifestyles have led to both an increase in waste generation and more complex waste types. In response to these changes, many local governments have invested in municipal solid waste infrastructure (MSWI) to implement circular strategies. However, matching and bridging the costly...

Safeguarding democratic elections is hard. Social media plays a vital role in the discourse around elections and during electoral campaigns. The following article provides an analysis of the 'systemic electoral risks' created by Twitter and Facebook and the mitigation strategies employed by the platforms. It is based on the 2020 proposal by...

Wang, N. (author)
The pledge for a carbon-free energy system in 2050 requires significant investments into renewable energy sources (RES). The relevant questions are: what technologies to select, where to build them, how much the capacities are, and at what cost. In order to answer these techno-economic questions, optimization models are commonly used to sketch a...

Emerging economies produce 70-90% of the world’s steel, cement, and chemicals, which are essential for development. However, performance indicators such as carbon intensity and energy use per GDP reveal that industrial development trends in emerging economies are not sustainable. The ideal of industrial development that sustains and improves...

Nowadays a growing concern among the scientific community, and the wider public are pushing politicians and countries to design policies for reversing the course of warming the plant. These efforts are backed up by, for example, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement. As resources are limited, studies have<br/>tried to identify sectors and...

In the Netherlands, a complex heat transition is taking place. Currently, the country's built environment largely relies on natural gas for heating. By 2050, the housing sector should, in principle, be free of this fuel. Changes in laws, policies, regulations, and technical solutions to achieve this goal will be challenging. Their implementation...

How can humans remain in control of artificial intelligence (AI)-based systems designed to perform tasks autonomously? Such systems are increasingly ubiquitous, creating benefits - but also undesirable situations where moral responsibility for their actions cannot be properly attributed to any particular person or group. The concept of...

Natural gas for heating is widespread in the built environment of The Netherlands, where the government aims at limiting heat demand and reducing natural gas consumption over the coming decades. In the owner-occupied residential sector, this transition is complex and requires cooperation and coordination of individuals and groups that make...

When discussing media, parasocial phenomena is mentioned. Audience members naturally partake in parasocial phenomena when consuming media and empathizing with media figures. Viewers who form relationships with a media figure despite never meeting them are said to be in a parasocial relationship. On YouTube, examples of parasocial interactions...

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has permeated every part of our world. It discovers new molecules, recommends what to watch and informs many business decisions everyday. There it has also become part of hiring, where recruiters are in need of more efficiency. The digital age has caused the amount of applications per position to skyrocket, while...

Enterprise Modelling (EM) is the process of producing models, which in turn can be used to support understanding, analysis, (re)design, reasoning, control and learning about various aspects of an enterprise. Various EM techniques and languages exist, and are often supported by computational tools, in particular simulation. The goal of this...
