Our Interim Summary Report plus nine interim reports below provide an update on each research topics emerging from Australia’s Global Power System Transformation (G-PST) Roadmap (2022).

This Roadmap outlined a research path to prepare a power system that provides secure and reliable operation with high penetration of renewables during the energy transition to a decarbonised global electrical grid.

Each interim report contains 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
  • summarise what is scheduled to be completed by May 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 FY 2023/24.

We also set out recommended research tasks for the next stage (Stage 3 in Financial Year 2023/2024) of the project.

These interim reports will be used to:

  • provide information required for Expression of Interest (EOI) for 2023/24 financial year
  • 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.
