The Intyal­heme Cen­tre for Future Ener­gy is lead­ing deliv­ery of the Alice Springs Future Grid project on behalf of Desert Knowl­edge Aus­tralia (DKA). Intyal­heme was launched with $5m seed fund­ing from the North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry Gov­ern­ment (NTG) to assist in meet­ing the Territory’s renew­able ener­gy tar­get of 50 per cent by 2030.

Fol­low­ing the Roadmap to Renew­ables report of 2017, it was recog­nised by the NTG that no sin­gle enti­ty could achieve the renew­able ener­gy tar­get. There­fore, Intyal­heme was estab­lished to help coor­di­nate ener­gy indus­try play­ers and deliv­er col­lab­o­ra­tive projects to over­come bar­ri­ers to fur­ther renew­able ener­gy uptake. The result­ing project is Alice Springs Future Grid. The project is led by Intyal­heme, on behalf of Desert Knowl­edge Aus­tralia (DKA).

The Alice Springs Future Grid project received fund­ing from ARE­NA as part of ARE­NA’s Advanc­ing Renew­ables Pro­gram.

This project is also fund­ed by the Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment Depart­ment of Indus­try, Sci­ence, Ener­gy and Resources through the Region­al and Remote Com­mu­ni­ties Reli­a­bil­i­ty Fund – Micro­grids Pro­gram.

Intyal­heme is the project deliv­ery lead and a major fund­ing con­trib­u­tor. Intyal­heme acknowl­edges cash and in-kind con­tri­bu­tions from the Con­sor­tium Mem­bers and par­tic­i­pat­ing organisations.
