Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 1 Hansard (16 February) . . Page.. 436..


(2) Operating costs have not been included in the model as this would be managed by a private entity.

(3) Draft Action Plan 2 does not promote the ownership of generating capacity by Government, the required capacity would be managed by a private entity.

(4) The cost of this pathway presented in draft Action Plan 2 is an estimate based on an assumed introduction of a CCGT generator. The cost each year up to 2020 will be dependent upon how much capacity is actually installed in each year.

(5) The abatement each year up to 2020 will be dependent upon how much CCGT capacity is actually installed in each year.

Transport—abatement (Question No 1959)

Mr Seselja asked the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, upon notice, on 8 December 2011:

(1) In relation to the Weathering the Change Draft Action Plan 2, Pathway 4 - Buildings, transport, waste and offsets, who would purchase these offsets and how will the cost be passed onto the ACT community.

(2) How will the Government enforce a change in Canberrans transport behaviour to achieve the desired abatement.

(3) What will be the cost each year, for each component up to 2020, if this pathway was implemented.

(4) What will be the abatement, for each component in each year up to 2020, if this pathway was implemented.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The mechanisms the Government will use to implement carbon offsets will be detailed in the ACT Carbon Offsets Policy. This will be released in conjunction with a final Action Plan 2.

(2) The Transport for Canberra Strategy will promote alternatives to private vehicles in the ACT while the ACT Planning Strategy will support the creation of a more compact city with urban renewal along transport corridors.

(3) The cost of this pathway presented in draft Action Plan 2 is based on an estimated price of carbon offsets. The cost each year up to 2020 will be dependent upon the amount of offsets required in each year.

(4) The abatement each year up to 2020 will be dependent upon the amount of offsets required in each year.
