G-PST/ESIG Webinar Series: GFM Technology Implementation Council – Status and Outlook
September 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Featured Speaker: Sten Arendt Stoltze, Senior Vice President – Engineering EPCO & IT, Ørsted
About the Webinar: The Global Power System Transformation Consortium (GPST) is a force multiplier in the global effort to drive rapid transition to a zero-carbon electricity grid, connecting its ecosystem partners and creating intentional, inclusive and purpose-driven collaboration to solve common challenges. The mission of GPST is to bring together key actors and 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 systems operators across 5 Action Pillars. The GPST system operators and core leadership team have identified six enablers to meeting a collective target of operating a GW scale transmission system with 100% inverter based resources (IBR) by 2025. These enablers include accelerating and deploying new IBR technology such as grid forming controls, defining new system needs and services, advancements in resource adequacy and integrated planning, enabling new stability tools, models, methods and metrics, shaping the control room of the future and unlocking DER integration. From these enablers, six implementation councils have been created to drive outcomes in these areas, the first of which is the Grid Forming Technology Implementation Council (GFMIC). This webinar will give an overview of the GFMIC, share how this Council is accelerating GFM technology deployment through technology demonstrations, model development and validation, and codification and standardization of GFM requirements. It will also cover existing and future efforts to scale GFM technology deployment across the globe.
