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.


Open Data & Tools

Support rigorous planning, operational analysis and enhanced real-time system monitoring through open data and tools.
