What's the difference between delta G and then deltaG^0?

Delta G^o is the standard free energy change based on standard state formation of 1 mol of the substance. Delta G is the free energy change of the substance not in the standard state.

Delta G^0 is for standard conditions such as standard temperature (25 degrees celcius/298K). Delta G is for nonstandard conditions and depends on those, this means temperature, for instance, is not standard.
