The Intyalheme story
Intyalheme (pronounced in-CHAR-lum) is an Arrernte word that means ‘a fire flaring up again’. The name represents the need to“stoke the fire” by way of leveraging local expertise generated during previous initiatives, to overcome challenges presented by the transition to a renewable energy future.
Established with $5 million seed funding from the Northern Territory Government, Intyalheme’s role is to enhance renewable energy capability by bridging gaps in relationships, knowledge, and technologies. The NT Government aims to power the Territory with 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030. Intyalheme contributes to this goal by leading collaborative projects, sharing existing knowledge and generating new knowledge.
Based in Alice Springs, Intyalheme is a flagship project of Desert Knowledge Australia (DKA). It is governed by a consortium of representatives from DKA, the NT Government, Power and Water Corporation, Charles Darwin University and Ekistica.
