Van Lelyveld, W. (author)
Global turmoil concerning fossil fuels, questions relating to sustainable sources of energy and difficulties with sharing knowledge led to the creation of the Energy Transition Model (ETM) in the start of 2008. The ETM aims to be a transparent, comprehensive, fact-based, and independent model about energy related matters, ranging from CO2...

Limiting global temperature increase by 1.5 ̊C rather than 2 ̊C reduces the impacts of climate change significantly (Knutti et al., 2015; Schleussner et al., 2016). It requires a rigorous transition of the global energy system in a very short time span. Though, the published energy scenarios that focus on 1.5 ̊C are limited (Peters, 2016). In...

At the moment global climate change is one of the most prominent environmental and energy issues of our life time. Currently CO2 levels in the atmosphere stand at 387 ppm, almost 40% higher since the start of the industrial revolution and the highest for at least the last 650,000 years. About 96% of these carbon emissions are the result of using...

A continuous population growth and increasing energy demand combined with depleting traditional energy reserves puts a pressure on conventional methods of electricity generation. The desire and ambition to create a more sustainable society paves the way for the ‘renewables’. Hydropower or Hydroelectricity already plays a significant role in...

This thesis describes the research for, and the assessment of a new type of energy source and actuation, applicable to a Micro Aerial Vehicle (MAV). From the preliminary study resulted a promising energy source: hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) which is combined with the basic principle of the internal combustion engine for conversion to mechanical...

The project Transferium Almere 2.0 was developed in two separate but tightly connected stages. The networked urban solution and wind informed geometry of main Transferium volumes. The development of urban solution ran in fall term. The solution is reflexing changes needed in development of new cities’ extensions. The current master plans served...

Current solutions for energy supply of electrical equipment in gardens are very limited and do not suffice. The inductive energy distribution concept that was developed by the company E-Snake BV, named E-Snake, could be a solution, by providing simple electrical installation that allows for flexible take-off. However, the usability of the...

This graduation project focuses on a combination of the following; cars, comfort and the future. Two of these elements seem hard to grasp, and one moves the world. Together they form the ingredients for an interesting challenge; how can we provide comfort to the occupants of future cars? The power consumption of comfort features in a fuel...

Renewable energy sources, like wind- and solar power, are expected to generate a greater part of the electricity production in the Netherlands each upcoming year. Besides all the advantages, the energy supply of these renewable energy sources fluctuates heavily as they mainly depend on the amount of wind and sun. Therefore, the electricity...

Bots, M.J. (author)
Cellular solids are characteristically excellent energy absorbers due to their capacity to store large amounts of energy through compression. A bioinspired design approach identified the Pomelo fruit (Citrus Maximus) as a biological role model for energy absorption. Fruit peels’ biologically most important functions lies in the need to provide...

Different kinds of typical and advanced façade (active wall®, interactive wall®, curtain wall, closed cavity façade®, triple glazing…) are more and more used in UK and other European countries, some of them are suitable for local climate with good energy and comfort performance. In order to predict their performance in other climate we need to...

Traditionally, long flights were an adventure for the happy few, nowadays they are mostly characterized as being boring. Passengers respond to this by creating isolated cocoons in which the passenger experience privacy and comfort. This behavior is stimulated by airlines who provide mentally passive stimulation, e.g. listening to music or...

The goal of this master thesis is to describe the spatial distribution of the wave overtopping discharge over and behind the crest of a coastal defence structure. The influence of the most relevant parameters on this process is explored. This research has been performed by means of a physical model. The following relevant parameters were varied...

The main aim of the research is to passively use the on-site energy to create passive climate comfort. Usually this these passive strategies are not integrated into the design process but added to the building design later on when the building design is already finalized. The main topic of this building technology research is to integrate...

In a modern environment users are more dependant on their ability to use their mobile phone for nearly everything. They communicate with almost any device and those devices provide nearly limitless access to for instance a watch or in new applications, a lock. Issues encountered with these devices are the almost always lack the ability to keep...

India is a country constantly grappling with problems of impeded rural development. Energy, in particular sustainable energy can be seen as key to attain the Sustainable Development Goals set out by the U.N. Integration of rural sectors can be seen as a methodology to broaden the potential achievement of the targetted Sustainable Development...

“Our” world is changing rapidly, man-made global warming, as a result of greenhouse emissions is causing more frequently extreme weather patterns such as droughts or cloudbursts. In order to change the current fossil fuel based economy, producing and emitting harmful greenhouse gasses, a transition is required from this fossil fuel based economy...
