Global Power System Transformation Consortium: Goals and Progress on the Ground


The Global Power System Transformation Consortium (G-PST) seeks to dramatically accelerate the transition to low-emission, low-cost, secure, and reliable power systems, contributing to >50% emission reductions from 2020 to 2030, with $2 billion of government and donor support for technical, market, and workforce solutions that unlock $10 trillion+ of private sector investment.


G-PST’s 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: system operator research and peer learning; system operator technical support; foundational workforce development; localized technology adoption support; and open data and tools.


In this webinar, you will hear an overview of G-PST's goals, activities and accomplishments.
