Transition engineering

Transition Engineering is a key part of smoothing the transition from a high speed, high energy, high impact economy to a slower, lower energy, low impact economy.

Transition engineering enables change from unsustainable existing systems to more sustainable ones. Sustainability is built into all stages of the engineering process. Transition engineering is a cross-disciplinary field that addresses the issues of future resource availability and identifies solutions which promote resilience and design simplicity.
