Details  Transition Engineering, Building a Sustainable Future examines new strategies emerging in response to the mega-issues of global climate change, decline in world oil supply, scarcity of key industrial minerals, and local environmental constraints. These issues pose challenges for organizations, businesses, and communities, and engineers will need to begin developing ideas and projects to implement the transition of engineered systems. This work presents a methodology for shifting away from unsustainable activities.

 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
