Dramatically accelerate the transition to low emission and low cost, secure, and reliable power systems, contributing to >50% emission reductions over the next 10 years, with $2 billion of government and donor support for technical, market, and workforce solutions that unlock $10 trillion+ of private sector investment.
Our Mission is to bring together key actors to foment a rapid clean energy transition at unprecedented scope and scale by providing coordinated and holistic “end-to-end” support and knowledge infusion to power system operators across the 5 Action Pillars.
About G-PST Consortium
In 2019, the chief executive officers of the six fastest decarbonizing energy systems in the world came together to form the Global Power System Transformation (G-PST) Consortium. These Founding System Operators lead and disseminate G-PST’s cutting-edge, applied research to solve pressing challenges for the world’s leading system operators.
G-PST is not a single organization, but convenes expertise across a network of system operators, manufacturers, utilities, standards bodies, and research institutions to accelerate proving solutions that enable grids across the world to run on 100% renewable energy and help keep global temperature rises below 1.5 degrees Celsius. G-PST’s Core Team organizations coordinate and contribute expertise to its technical pillars and inform G-PST’s strategic approach.
G-PST also coordinates peer learning networks and country-level technical assistance delivery efforts for Africa, Asia, and Latin America and the Caribbean through regional partner organizations. International agencies and multilateral and regional development banks are also serving as key implementing partners to ensure G-PST activities complement and reinforce existing programs.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory currently functions as G-PST’s secretariat, which coordinates cross-pillar work programs, partnerships and support, and outreach.
