A round robin test was carried out in four PV laboratories to compare accelerated lifetime testing. Twenty commercial non-packaged CIGS solar cells of similar performance were spread and exposed to damp heat con-ditions (85 ◦C and 85% RH) for approximately 500 h. Their JV performance was monitored during the damp heat exposure. After the test,...

Sorption Enhanced DiMethyl Ether Synthesis (SEDMES) is a promising option to overcome thermodynamic limitations of conventional DME production processes. In this work a 2D+1D heterogeneous dynamic model of the reaction/adsorption step in a tube of an externally cooled multitubular fixed bed SEDMES reactor is developed in order to investigate the...

Seasonal storage of heat in shallow aquifers for increasing the efficiency of geothermal energy systems requires a proper monitoring strategy. We expanded our earlier work on harmonic pulse testing (HPT) to incorporate the effect of a temperature front moving into the reservoir due to injection of hot (or cold) water. Our analytical solutions...

A large part of the population in many African countries lacks access to electricity, in contrast to the ambition of reaching universal energy access as expressed in the Sustainable Development Goals. Off-grid electricity technologies have been proposed as an important means to solve this challenge. It is uncertain, however, at what rate these...

To ensure a circular economy for plastics, insights in the environmental impacts of recycling and optimal recycling choices for specific plastic polymers are crucial. This was obtained by determining the environmental performance of 10 selected recycling technologies with varying TRL levels, using the chemical properties of the top 25 produced...

Nowadays, nearly 50% of the hydrogen produced worldwide comes from Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) at an environmental burden of 10.tCO2,eq/tH2 accelerating the consequences of global warming. One way to produce clean hydrogen is via methane pyrolysis using melts of metals and salts. Compared to SMR, significant less CO2 is produced due to...

The power system is undergoing a significant change as it adapts to the intermittency and uncertainty from renewable generation. Flexibility from loads such as electric vehicles (EVs) can serve as reserves to sustain the supply-demand balance in the grid. Some reserve markets have rules for participation that are computationally challenging for...

The importance of spatial resolution for energy modelling has increased in the last years. Incorporating more spatial resolution in energy models presents wide benefits, but it is not straightforward, as it might compromise their computational performance. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive review of spatial resolution in energy models,...

The surface of wind turbine blades are prone to degradation due to exposure to the elements. Rain, hail, insects are among the many causes of turbine blade degradation or erosion. Surface degradation of the wind turbine blades leads to a reduction in the aerodynamic performance, resulting in power losses. The effect of surface degradation is...

Oxide/metal/oxide (OMO) layer stacks are promising replacements for conventional transparent conductive oxides in thin-film photovoltaics. They can provide colouration of the solar cells by adjusting their thickness to optimised optical resonances. Green OMO multistacks were deposited on glass by subsequent sputtering of aluminium doped zinc...

The Visible Spectroscopy Reference System (55.E6.VSRS) is going to be one of the first optical diagnostic systems in the ITER tokamak chamber, for which plasma cleaning system of front-end optics has to be implemented. In order to extract light out of the fusion plasma towards diagnostic sensor systems, a set of optics forming a labyrinth will...

A series of photocatalysts consisting of C- and N-doped titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles highly dispersed and firmly embedded at the surface of a silica matrix were prepared using a novel synthesis method in which activated carbon has a double role: it acts as support for depositing the TiO2 nanoparticles and as hard template for generating...

Thermochemical heat storage is expected to play an important role in the ongoing transformation of the European energy system. The efficiency of thermochemical heat storage systems largely depends on that of the reactor, since it limits the amount of the heat stored per unit volume as well as the rate of the heat recovery. Thus, the optimization...

This work aims to understand oxygen solubility in pure and aqueous amine solvents for CO2 capture. Commercially available dissolved oxygen sensors were studied to evaluate whether these can be used for measuring oxygen solubility in the carbon capture processes. It also aims to understand the possible discrepansies from realistic concentrations...

For carbon capture and storage (CCS) to be a truly effective option within the efforts being made to mitigate climate change, it must be sustainable. An assessment is therefore required regarding how the deployment of CCS will positively contribute towards the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. This assessment...

After a 13,000-hour test campaign with aqueous 30 wt% MEA (2-aminoethanol) solvent at the CO2 capture pilot plant at Niederaussem, another long-term test was carried out as part of the ALING-CCUS project. This test ran for more than 12,275 hours with aqueous AMP/PZ (2-Amino-2-methyl-1-propanol/piperazine) solvent, named CESAR1 (3.0 molar AMP (~...

Energy poverty is receiving increased attention in developed countries like the Netherlands. Although it only affects a relatively small share of the population, it constitutes a stern challenge that is hard to quantify and monitor, hence difficult to effectively tackle through adequate policy measures. In this paper we introduce a framework to...

We present a parameter retrieval method which incorporates prior knowledge about the object into ptychography. The proposed method is applied to two applications: (1) parameter retrieval of small particles from Fourier ptychographic dark field measurements; (2) parameter retrieval of a rectangular structure with realspace ptychography. The...

Salt hydrates are promising candidates for the long-term thermochemical heat storage (TCES) in thebuilding environment. In such storage systems, the surplus of energy will be exploited in an endothermicreaction to dehydrate the salt hydrates. Once it is demanded, the stored energy will be released throughan exothermic reaction by hydrating the...
