Energy Transition of Buildings and Urban Activity Systems
We invite breakthrough thinking with rigorous analysis of specific projects in cities around the world.  Energy transition must be executable, demonstrate metrics of wellbeing, and exhibit long-term viability (e.g. at least 100 years), while delivering 80% downshift in fossil fuel use and material lifecycle demand (e.g. products and waste).

1st International GATE Conference

1st International GATE Conference

Date  September 08, 2017Details  GATE 2018 Breaks new ground with global "no-travel" design
GATE didn't want people to have to fly to the conference. Thus we organized an e-conference with venues in New Zealand and UK, and live webfeed to people around the world. We reduced the greenhouse gas emissions by more than 80% AND we all slept better. Other benefits included much higher attendance, and not having to go through airport security.
