These Stage 3 Interim Reports summarise the progress, insights, and achievements of eight CSIRO funded Global Power System Transformation (GPST) research projects carried out during 2023 and provide guidance to the scope of research for GPST Stage 4 work.

The GPST research is strategically targeted to enhance energy sector research that will support stable acceleration of the energy transition underway in Australia, and globally.

The eight Stage 3 Interim projects are a continuation of the research initiated by CSIRO during 2022, and represent the second year of implementation of the CSIRO GPST Research Roadmap published in 2021.

The information has been provided by the research organisations appointed by CSIRO to lead each of the eight research topics. Input from key CSIRO energy researchers, and relevant AEMO staff has assisted in each of these topics.

The interim reports:

  • Explain the critical need for this research to support the acceleration of the energy transition underway in Australia, and globally.
  • Establish clearly what has been done in the research topic to the end of 2023, since commencement in May 2023.
  • Summarise what is scheduled to be completed in each research topic until contract end in April 2024.
  • Place the current stage of research in context of the CSIRO Research Plan that was developed in 2021.
  • Suggest any changes or adaptation to the original research roadmap published in 2021 as a result of factors such as research outcomes, advances in relevant technology, or energy policy and regulation changes.
  • Recommend high priority future work for this topic for the next round of research scheduled for 2024/25.

The final GPST Stage 3 Reports will be published mid-2024.

The information in each report has been provided by the research organisations appointed for each project.

Note: The research topic 6 on Services was not progressed this year. CSIRO expects to include Topic 6 in the next round scheduled for 2024/25.
