History of GATE

Details  The story of Transition Engineering is a convergence of professional engineers seeking more impactful approaches to sustainability, and academics searching for a methodology that deals with the complexity of change to address un-sustainability risks and issues. Transition Engineering developed through research in New Zealand in the 2000's. The concept was set out in the IET Prestige Lecture series in 2010. The idea of setting up a professional organization was explored, and the path to the GATE opened in 2014. The GATE gained legal status in 2016 and elected the Trustees in 2017. The website and administration was developed and the GATE opened for membership in 2018. Join Today!
Understand The Con

Understand The Con

Details  In Transition Engineering, one of the 7 steps of the methodology is to interrogate the scenarios about future technologies, policies or behaviour changes. This is a challenging engineering effort where we try to apply analytical and scientific evidence to things that most people take on belief and imbue with hope. Maybe our analysis can't convince believers in the hydrogen economy or carbon capture and storage that these things are not worth time and investment. But the main point of the exercise is for the Transition Engineer to understand the con and to pick up tools and move on.
