Alice Springs local Glenn Marshall to lead Intyalheme.

Desert Knowl­edge Aus­tralia wel­comes Alice Springs local Glenn Mar­shall to the team to man­age its flag­ship project, the Intyal­heme Cen­tre for Future Ener­gy.

Intyal­heme (pro­nounced in-char-lum) is an Arrernte word mean­ing a fire start­ing up again’. It’s the per­fect word to describe the way the DKA project builds on Alice Springs’ long his­to­ry of solar exper­tise and infra­struc­ture to lead excit­ing new ini­tia­tives that encour­age the increased uptake of renew­able energy. 

Mr Mar­shall will lead Intyal­heme for 12 months while out­go­ing Gen­er­al Man­ag­er Sara John­ston is on mater­ni­ty leave. He brings years of project man­age­ment skills, com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment expe­ri­ence and a pas­sion for renew­ables to a project that is cre­at­ing con­nec­tions across the NT ener­gy sector. 

Intyalheme’s work to ener­gise the Territory’s renew­able future is some­thing I’m very proud to be a part of. Sara has done impres­sive work estab­lish­ing Intyal­heme and I look for­ward to lead­ing this vital project for the next year,” said Mr Marshall. 

Intyal­heme leads col­lab­o­ra­tive projects that work towards North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry Government’s goal of pow­er­ing the Ter­ri­to­ry with 50% renew­ables by 2030. Ener­gy experts from around Aus­tralia agree that Alice Springs is the per­fect place to devel­op inno­v­a­tive solu­tions that will ben­e­fit pow­er sys­tems all over Australia. 

Over the next 12 months Intyal­heme will focus on the Alice Springs Future Grid, a suite of projects work­ing to over­come the tech­ni­cal chal­lenges asso­ci­at­ed with inte­grat­ing more renew­ables into our pow­er sys­tem. Due to the size and char­ac­ter­is­tics of our grid, Alice Springs must devel­op solu­tions to these chal­lenges sev­er­al years before the rest of Aus­tralia, at which point the nation will look to Alice for the answers.
