The Intyal­heme Cen­tre for Future Ener­gy was set up to dri­ve the NT towards its 50% by 2030 renew­able ener­gy tar­get. Intyal­heme is coor­di­nat­ing elec­tric­i­ty indus­try part­ners to iden­ti­fy and remove bar­ri­ers to fur­ther renew­able ener­gy pen­e­tra­tion in the Alice Springs pow­er sys­tem; a com­plex chal­lenge in one of Australia’s most iso­lat­ed grids. Intyal­heme (pro­nounced in-char-lum) is an Arrernte word mean­ing a fire start­ing up again’. It alludes to the strong local his­to­ry of inno­va­tion in renew­able energy. 

Intyalheme’s guid­ing prin­ci­ples are facil­i­ta­tion, col­lab­o­ra­tion and rel­e­vance. Intyal­heme grows part­ner­ships that demon­strate how new tech­nol­o­gy and inno­v­a­tive prac­tices can be applied through­out Aus­tralia and beyond.

Intyalheme’s core focus areas are: 

  • Knowl­edge sharing
  • Research and development
  • Test­ing of new and emerg­ing technologies
  • Rela­tion­ship and net­work facilitation
  • Indus­try part­ner­ships and commercialisation
  • Com­mu­ni­ty edu­ca­tion and engagement
  • Increas­ing human capac­i­ty and skills, train­ing and devel­op­ment, employ­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties across the renew­able ener­gy sector

Intyal­heme was estab­lished with a North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry Gov­ern­ment grant ($5 mil­lion over 3 years) and is devel­op­ing a sus­tain­able busi­ness mod­el so that its con­tri­bu­tion to the ener­gy sec­tor is ongo­ing. Intyal­heme is a flag­ship project of DKA gov­erned by a con­sor­tium of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from DKA, the North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry Gov­ern­ment, Pow­er and Water Cor­po­ra­tion, Charles Dar­win Uni­ver­si­ty and Ekisti­ca.
