What is the current state of AI, and how can it be employed for power system transformation? In this panel discussion, researchers in AI and power systems will reflect on the readiness of AI to contribute to the areas of innovation identified in the inaugural G-PST research agenda. They will then identify opportunities for ongoing research and deployment within both the AI and power systems communities. This session will build on the discussion from our March webinar entitled “Open Discussion with Global Power System Operators: The AI Opportunity,” in which global power system operators shared the opportunities and challenges they are facing in decarbonizing electric grids, as well as their initial perspectives on how AI could help. (Participation in the prior webinar is not required to attend this session.) This event is organized in collaboration between G-PST, ESIG, Climate Change AI (CCAI), and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as part of EPRI’s Artificial Intelligence Grand Challenges initiative.
