Tackling climate change requires international cooperation, and we at National Grid ESO are a leading member and partnering with many global energy organisations helping to deliver greener grids around the world.

Find out more about the partnerships and networks that are bringing together expertise from across the globe to integrate more clean energy into the world’s power systems.



Global PST logo

What is Global PST?

The Global Power System Transformation Consortium is a group of system operators, research institutions, international agencies, businesses, and non-governmental organizations working to dramatically accelerate the transition to low emission and low cost, secure, and reliable power systems. National Grid ESO is a leading member of the group, helping to deliver the technical collaboration, peer learning and the advanced engineering solutions needed to assist global power systems transitioning to low carbon.

ENTSO-E logo

What is ENTSO-E?

ENTSO-E, the European Network of Transmission System Operators, represents 42 electricity transmission system operators (TSOs) from 35 countries across Europe. National Grid was one of the founding members, supporting closer cooperation across Europe’s TSOs, delivering an efficient interconnected electricity system, and helping to achieve Europe’s shared energy and climate policy objectives.

Powering Past Coal Alliance (PPCA) logo

What is the Powering Past Coal Alliance (PPCA)?

The Powering Past Coal Alliance is a coalition of national and sub-national governments, businesses and organisations working to advance the transition from coal power generation to clean energy. The PPCA is at the forefront of the global effort to deliver the Paris Agreement, helping to phase out coal-fired electricity and sharing best practice on zero carbon operation of the electricity systems.


What is CIGRE?

CIGRE (International Council on Large Electric Systems) is a collaborative global community committed to creating, developing and sharing of power system expertise. As a member of the CIGRE community, we are encouraging knowledge sharing among power system professionals globally to enable the sustainable provision of electricity for all.


What is CORESO?

CORESO (Coordination of Electricity System Operators) facilitates cooperation between 9 electricity transmission system operators across Europe, covering the operation of the high-voltage electricity system for over 55% of the population of the European Union. Its mission is to proactively help TSOs to ensure security of supply on a European regional basis, help the integration of large-scale renewable energy generation and further development of the European electricity market.
