The Diels–Alder (DA) reaction of furans is a versatile tool in synthetic organic chemistry and in the production of sustainable building blocks and smart materials. Numerous experimental and theoretical investigations suggest that the diene scope is effectively limited to electron-rich furans, which excludes the most abundant and readily...

Purpose: This study evaluates the potential of biomass ash as raw clinker material and the influence of biomass feedstock and thermal conversion technology on biomass ash properties. Methods: A set of criteria for biomass feedstock and ash properties (i.e. CaO/SiO2 ratio and burnability) are established. A large dataset was collected and the...

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...

An enormous area could potentially be unlocked, when more photovoltaic (PV) systems would be deployed on water bodies. Especially in densely populated areas this opens a pathway for PV to contribute to the energy transition in a large scale. Another potential benefit of floating PV (FPV) systems is that they can outperform conventional PV...

Using the example of how elite Nordic chefs use a relatively novel food such as seaweed in Nordic cuisine, we describe and develop a model of creative innovation in gastronomy services from a systems perspective. Seaweed has long had a connotation of poverty and austerity in the Nordic regions and had thus been a forgotten or marginalized food...

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is currently considered as a waste material due to its negative impact on the environment. However, it is possible to create value from CO2 by capturing and utilizing it as a building block for commodity chemicals. Electrochemical conversion of CO2 has excellent potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reaching...

The integration of gasification with syngas fermentation is still in an early stage of development, where many questions exist concerning the syngas quality required. The challenge is to define the gasification conditions that will provide a H2:CO:CO2 ratio suitable for syngas fermentation, as well as to identify and remove the compounds that...

The furan Diels–Alder (DA) cycloaddition reaction has become an important tool in green chemistry, being central to the sustainable synthesis of many chemical building blocks. The restriction to electron-rich furans is a significant limitation of the scope of suitable dienes, in particular hampering the use of the furans most readily obtained...

Vraagsturing in warmtenetten kan de kosten voor exploitatie van bestaande warmtenetten en het ontwerp van nieuwe warmtenetten verlagen en bijdragen aan de verduurzaming van warmtenetten. Maar de vraag is hoe werkt vraagsturing in warmtenetten in de praktijk? Hoe kunnen warmteleveranciers of bewonerscollectieven de gebruikers zo ver krijgen dat...

This article introduces and describes OPERA, a new technology-rich bottom-up energy system optimization model for the Netherlands. We give a detailed specification of OPERA’s underlying methodology and approach, as well as a description of its multiple applications. The model has been used extensively to formulate strategic policy advice on...

Energy poverty is emerging as a national agenda in the Netherlands. Local authority leadership and action on this agenda, and European Union reporting requirements around the energy transition have aligned to create an opportunity to establish a national agenda on this issue. Early action on energy poverty by local authorities stemmed from their...

In order to further reduce the LCOE of PV, the conversion efficiency must increase beyond the practical limit of silicon technology (26% [1]). It is believed that tandem module technology, combining bottom c-Si cells with low-cost thin-film top cells, can overcome the silicon limit. Recently, bifacial glass/glass modules are gaining market share...

To lower pollution, it became imperative to integrate as much renewable energies as possible in power systems. This has been translated into forcing the maximum production of variable renewable energy (VRE) ---wind and solar--- into power systems operation. The increasing operational costs to maximize the VRE output became the price to pay in...

Large quantities of biomass will be needed to feed the biobased economy. Use of crops and wood may cause (indirect) land use change related greenhouse gas emissions. Agro-residues could be an interesting alternative. However, several issues are hindering efficient application: high potassium and chlorine content and low bulk density are the most...

Solar electricity from solar parks in rural areas are cost effective, can be deployed fast and can therefore play an important role in the energy transition. The optimal design of a solar park is, amongst others, affected by income scheme, electricity transport capacity and land lease costs. Important design parameters for utility-scale solar...

The need for a more sustainable built environment is urgent and requires cost-efficient, smart and integrated renewable energy solutions. The surfaces of the buildings and environments we live and work in represent an enormous potential to generate sustainable energy. In order to exploit these surfaces to their full potential, it is essential to...
