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.
