Representatives from leading global technical institutes and the G-PST Founding System Operators (FSOs) formulated and are pursuing a research agenda that lays out the near-term applied research priorities of the FSOs. The research informed by this agenda will support power system operators in reliably and cost-effectively achieving very high penetrations of inverter-based resources (IBRs) on their power systems over the next decade. Results of the research will be shared with all system operators globally.
Pillar 1 activities are guided by the Research Agenda Group (RAG) under the CEOs of the Founding System Operators. Activities are conducted by researchers across the globe who choose to tackle these research questions. In addition to the RAG, Pillar 1 also includes a Research Advisory Committee (RAC), consisting of members from advanced system operators, energy companies, manufacturers, universities, national labs, and consultants
