“Working towards the 21st century power grid: World’s largest power grid operators are organized in 5 Committees to share common challenges”
In 2015, GO15 joint activities have been restructured into five Committees that address the operational, technological, communication and financial aspects of the power grids.
The role of the GO15 Committees is to address the critical society needs and to recommend to the member top executives how the future power grids should be structured and operated to enable the large scale integration of renewable generation and alternate sources of fuels.
These Committees rely each on Task Forces composed of subject matters experts from the contributing members. Committees are under the responsibility of one or several co-chairs, who develop the roadmap and work plans, and coordinate the Committee activities through regular face-to-face meetings. The Task Forces focus on specific annual deliverables, and are created or disbanded as needed.
In addition, the Committees play a key role in the exchange of information with the various international organizations through workshops, conferences and technical contributions.
