At our international meeting we undertook the biggest transition engineering brainstorm yet. We took on the ultimate wicked problem of global oil production, currently over 96 million barrels per day. The global oil supply is essential for nearly all activities and end uses, if oil supply declined, the price would shoot up and the world economy would be thrown into recession. But continued growth in production, or even maintenance of current production is not sustainable. Investment in new oil production provides one of the historically highest rates of return. But this production must retreat by 80% in order to have any chance of staying under the planetary greenhouse gas accumulation failure limit. Click the link to see the MegaShift Project that came out of this wickedest of all problems.
The Perspective ShiftDetails How do you know if you are looking at the problem the right way? We all know that the project of transition will require new ideas, new technologies, new operations, new economics... But doesn't all of this start by getting the problem definition right? The future is not like the past. TE offers the skill of shifting perspective.

Safety Engineering was the first evolution of engineering for prevention. Transition Engineering projects have a primary requirement of preventing catastrophic climate change.
How do you define sustainability? Transition Engineering involves a shift of perspective from adding more sustainable options to shifting unsustainable energy and material production.

Anyone who agrees with the objectives and ethics of GATE can join as an Associate Member. But to gain status as an Engineering Member and be recognised as a professional Transition Engineer, you need to learn the approach to wicked problems, the methodology and tools. Transition Engineering is non-denominational so any accredited undergraduate degree qualification is sufficient.
How does Transition Engineering change that?
