Women in PST and G-PST Launch Free Technical Teaching Materials for Global Use
With leadership from Imperial College London and power systems experts from around the world, Women in PST and the G-PST released university-level teaching materials on 5 power system technical topics, now publicly available for download.
Pillar 1 Welcomes Contributions to Newly Released Research Repository
Pillar 1 has developed an extensive Research Repository, which details current and recent research projects from around the world that are well-aligned with the Inaugural Research Agenda. The Repository is a working document, and more contributions are welcomed.
Pillar 5 Develops Portal to Aggregate Open-Source Power System Software
The G-PST Consortium's Pillar 5, led by VTT Finland with support from NREL, is developing an open-source tool portal to help filter, visualize, and identify open-source power systems software capabilities. This portal will be a practice-oriented resource aimed at making ...
Advanced Open Tools Characterized to Support System Operation and Planning
A detailed characterization approach was developed for the open models and tools, along with comprehensive dimensions of assessment. Subsequently, the classification and evaluation process started and is currently under progress. Moreover, A new proposal is being prepared to be submitted ...
The G-PST Consortium acts as a force multiplier in the global effort to drive rapid transition to a zero-carbon electricity grid, connecting its ecosystem partners and creating intentional, inclusive, and purpose-driven collaboration to solve common challenges.
Vision & Mission
Visionary Goal: Dramatically accelerate the transition to low emission and low cost, secure, and reliable power systems, contributing to >50% emission reductions over the next 10 years, with $2 billion of government and donor support for technical, market, and workforce solutions that unlock $10 trillion+ of private sector investment.
Mission: Our Mission is to bring together key actors to foment a rapid clean energy transition at unprecedented scope and scale by providing coordinated and holistic “end-to-end” support and knowledge infusion to power system operators across the 5 Action Pillars.
Key Action Pillars
The G-PST Consortium engages in activities across five key pillars with the goal of ensuring global coordination of our efforts toward the achievement of cost-efficient, clean, and reliable power systems.
System Operator Research & Peer Learning
Perform and globally disseminate cutting edge applied research to solve pressing challenges for the world’s leading system operators.
System Operator Technical Support
Provide implementation support to scale established best practice engineering and operational solutions for developing country system operators.
Foundational Workforce Development
Build the inclusive and diverse workforce of tomorrow through enhanced university curriculum and technical upskilling for utility and system operator staff.
Localized Technology Adoption Support
Adapt modern power system technologies to individual country contexts through standards development activities and testing programs.
The G-PST Consortium works with its partners and stakeholders to provide key resources and information about our work in each Pillar.
