About Transition Engineering

About Transition Engineering

Details  Our energy and material systems provide huge benefits and conveniences, and they make money. But they also are unsustainable, incur unacceptable external costs, and pose environmental and social risks. Transition Engineering is emerging to deal with wicked problems. The 7-step InTIME approach results in innovative transition shift projects. We are developing the  the revolutionary transition due diligence process.

 Critical Peak Demand

Christchurch, New Zealand - Critical Peak Demand

Details  The critical peak demand in Christchurch is in the winter evenings and mornings. The winter air pollution greatly exceeds health standards due to wood burning in about 10% of households. The peak loads are predominantly residential.  More than 40% of housing stock has no insulation. Aside from wood, household end-uses are almost exclusively electric. Electricity prices have been rising substantially. There are several scenarios that could improve security and help to manage costs, but there are also some surprising shift projects that have come out of considering this wicked problem.Tags    Energy Transition   
Conference: The Big Do

Conference: The Big Do

Date  October 09, 2018Details  That was Amazing! 
Just a week before the IPCC released the report on what we are in for and what we risk by running the planetary thermodynamics into instability - we met, and flipped our perspective and came up with a spectacularly disruptive  Big DO.  

Energy Transition

Energy Transition

Details  The future will not be like the past.
Unsustainable systems are wicked problems with no easy solutions. Transition Engineering creates surprising opportunities and innovative perspectives on downshifting unsustainable activities.

24 HOURS AROUND THE WORLD

We have an idea for a Shift Project! We are developing a new concept for a way to carry out conferences that does not involve flying between continents. Watch this space as we work out the design details, find technology providers who want to develop the new IT and organization app, and the international chain who wants to deliver the venue services.
