The Netherlands will need to transform her traditionally fossil fueled energy system in the coming decades to achieve the goal of reducing CO2 emissions to net-zero in 2050. Therefore, an increase in renewable energy sources as solar and wind energy in the overall energy mix will be essential. However, due to the highly variable energy...

The transition of the baby boomer bulge into old age and their increasing longevity will lift the numbers of elderly in residential aged care. Population ageing and associated fiscal pressures have motivated governments to shift responsibility for the financing of aged care to the individual. We consider policies that include owner-occupiers’...

The goal of this thesis is to create a decision-making framework for the structural material choice for high rise buildings (between 70 m and 250 m) in the Netherlands. The main research question is: How is the structural material for a high rise building in the Netherlands chosen and how can this process become structured? Currently of the...

The abundant public spaces in The Hague Zuid-West lack certain qualities in order to stimulate social cohesion and wellbeing in the district. These public spaces - well over the city’s average - are largely concentrated in a large central park called the Green Cross. The park is mainly used for sport activities and allotment gardens, and offers...

High temperature aquifer thermal energy storage (HT-ATES) can potentially solve the mismatch between heat supply and demand. It can provide a large scale seasonal heat storage solution. Thereby it enables an increase in full load hours of the base heat source, which can benefit project performance on both costs and emissions. However, the...

A research into the influence of the main parameters in the preliminary structural design on the wind-induced dynamic behaviour, including soil-structure interaction effects, of high-rise buildings in the Netherlands. The dynamic behaviour becomes more and more important for higher and more slender structure. The dynamic response is controlled...

It is widely accepted that land surface temperature (LST) affects household energy consumption (HEC). There is, however, no previous study available that clarifies whether LST's impact is similar in each and every area, or if it varies from one location to another. Analysing the impact of LST on HEC of 2612 residential zones of the...
