Our Stage 2 Summary Report and nine final Stage 2 reports below provide an update on progress regarding Australia’s Global Power System Transformation (G-PST) Roadmap which was launched in 2022.

Summary Report for Australia’s Global Power System Transformation Research Roadmap

Development of the Roadmap, which outlined a research path across nine key topics, represented Stage 1 work and focused on how we prepare a power system that provides secure and reliable operation during the energy transition to a decarbonised global electrical grid with high penetration of renewables.

The Stage 2 reports contain summaries for each of the nine appointed research topics to:

  • establish clearly what has been done in the research topic to the end of 2022/2023
  • map current research in the overall research plan that was developed for each G-PST research topic; and
  • propose future work for the next round of research scheduled for the next stage (Stage 3 in Financial Year 2023/24) of the project.

These Stage 2 reports will also be used to:

  • explore opportunities to secure additional funding for expansion of the G-PST work into Southeast Asian countries, and
  • look at distributed energy resource (DER) integration on the back of international recognition of the importance of this research.
