About Transition Engineering

About Transition Engineering

Details  The next big challenge for all engineering fields is handling wicked problems. Wicked problems are successful and profitable engineered systems that are also unsustainable. 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 approach results in innovative transition shift projects. Explore the Knowledge and Training resources where GATE members share experience with innovating, engineering and managing transition shift projects.

Energy Transition Engineering Course

Date  July 18, 2017Details  ENME405 Energy Systems Engineering offered at University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand incorporates a topical coverage of Transition Engineering. Chapters 1-3 of the upcoming text, Transition Engineering, CRC Press, were used by the class. As part of the final examination 2017 the students research and prepare an advice to the Minister of Transport regarding the government policy aimed at reducing carbon emissions by "encouraging purchase of electric vehicles".Link  http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/engineering...
