THE GLOBAL POWER SYSTEM
TRANSFORMATION CONSORTIUM

Gradient Separator

Rapidly accelerating transitions to advanced low emission power systems
in collaboration with power system operators in all regions

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.

PILLAR 1

System Operator Research & Peer Learning

Perform and globally disseminate cutting edge applied research to solve pressing challenges for the world’s leading system operators.

PILLAR 2

System Operator Technical Support

Provide implementation support to scale established best practice engineering and operational solutions for developing country system operators.

PILLAR 3

Foundational Workforce Development

Build the inclusive and diverse workforce of tomorrow through enhanced university curriculum and technical upskilling for utility and system operator staff.

PILLAR 4

Localized Technology Adoption Support

Adapt modern power system technologies to individual country contexts through standards development activities and testing programs.

PILLAR 5

Open Data & Tools

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