Deep decarbonization of the power sector is one of the most important levers for tackling climate change and setting a credible path to reaching net-zero. However, there are many technical and operational challenges associated with operating a zero-carbon electricity grid, much of which will be powered by variable renewable energy. Overcoming these barriers and building new capabilities, both in developed and developing countries, will be critical in accelerating the transformation to a low emission, low cost, secure, and reliable power system. The G-PST Consortium and Accenture co-hosted this event outlining the role of technology, innovation, and ecosystem partnerships in overcoming these barriers.
