G-PST Pillar 3 focuses on workforce development to enable power system transformation. This involves expanding public access to technical training materials at both the university and professional development levels. The G-PST Teaching Agenda identified ninety topics deemed essential for power system transformation, which will need to be addressed in post-graduate education and training programs to adequately prepare the power system workforce of the future.
In-depth teaching materials for five cutting-edge power system topics are now available and can be accessed by filling out the form below. The first four topics were developed in collaboration with Women in Power System Transformation (PST), a joint initiative from the USAID-NREL partnership, and the G-PST Consortium to expand leadership and technical training opportunities for women in the power sector.

The four topics developed with the Women in PST initiative include course content and student exercises that are critical to operating high variable renewable energy (VRE) power systems. All four technical topics are designed and taught by women professionals and experts. Additionally, technical teaching materials can be accompanied by introductory learnings on gender equity and inclusion to help train and inspire the diverse workforce of the future.
