The Synchrophasor project is the world’s first large-scale deployment of Synchrophasor technology in the distribution grid. This technology is enabled by big-data management techniques pioneered by IT in the last decade, providing electricity distribution network data visibility orders of magnitude greater than older technology. This high-resolution network data helps utilities to develop protection, control and automation for the modern distribution grid, making the grid safer and more reliable under high levels of renewable energy generation.

Other finalists in the Queensland division include the Cedar Grove wastewater treatment plant, 25 King Brisbane by Aurecon and the Surf Lakes project in Yeppoon Qld.
