This fact sheet provides a high level description of the G-PST Consortium including background, visionary goal, key players and an overview of our technical assistance approach.
This article, originally published in the November/December 2021 issue of IEEE Power and Energy Magazine, outlines the G-PST Consortium’s research agenda which intends to advance the operations and planning of power systems for the clean energy transition. The agenda seeks to include all possible advancements, from fundamental to applied research, driving solutions that are expected (but not assumed) to be globally applicable to all system operators.
This brief was prepared with substantial input from subject matter experts from several of the Global Power System Transformation Consortium’s founding system operators. Resource adequacy is a topic of great importance at this moment in time, and represents a potential short-term pitfall for ambitious clean energy targets globally. This brief was prepared in anticipation of COP26 to support the policy community by offering guidance on managing resource adequacy as the power system transforms.
This document summarizes the outputs from a consultation process led by the Global Power System Transformation (G-PST) Consortium’s Teaching Agenda Group (TAG). The main purpose of this document is to initiate wider consultation and get feedback from various stakeholders. This includes the Founding System Operators of the G-PST, other system operators around the world, G-PST core partners, university partners in different countries/regions and individuals/organizations who have expressed interest in contributing to or benefitting from the workforce development pillar of G-PST.
This document summarizes the outputs from a nine-month consultation process led by the Global Power System Transformation (G-PST) Consortium’s Research Agenda Group – which consists of senior technical staff from the six Founding System Operators and a range of leading research institutions – to build an organized, consensus-based global research agenda for the G-PST’s Founding System Operators (FSOs).
The IEEE Standards Association and the IEEE Power and Energy Society are working with the G-PST Consortium to assess viewpoints in the area of next-generation energy (e.g. renewables, energy storage, distributed energy resources, energy efficiency, and grid modernization, etc.) to support priority needs and interests for specific countries/regions. This document provides a summary of the first survey developed and administered by IEEE in support of Pillar 4 of G-PST Consortium on Localized Technology Adoption Support.
International agencies and multilateral and regional development banks, including World Bank, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ), International Energy Agency (IEA), Asian Development Bank (ADB), European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and others are serving as key implementing partners to ensure the consortium complements and reinforces existing programs.
On May 14 and 15, 2019, the ESIG held a workshop bringing together 56 experts from around the globe to identify the technological and economic integration challenges of transforming the electricity system toward 100% renewable. This report summarizes the outcome of the meeting. The workshop summarized in the report is seen as the first step of many to address the issue of going toward 100%, with the ultimate aim of producing a research roadmap for use by researchers, research organizations, and funders to help focus and prioritize their efforts and investments.
