Recently, in the metric spaces, Le Donne and the author introduced the so-called intrinsically Lipschitz sections. The main aim of this note is to adapt Cheeger theory for the classical Lipschitz constants in our new context. More precisely, we define the intrinsic Cheeger energy from $L^2(Y,\R^s)$ to $[1,+\infty],$ where $(Y,d_Y,\mm)$ is a metric measure space and we characterize it in terms of a suitable notion of relaxed slope. In order to get this result, in more general context, we establish some properties of the intrinsically Lipschitz constants like the Leibniz formula, the product formula and the upper semicontinuity of the asymptotic intrinsically Lipschitz constant.
