Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 3 Hansard (22 March) . . Page.. 1100..
approximately 742,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, a 6.2 per cent reduction on the territory's residential sector emissions in 2015.
It is important to emphasise that these figures, like any generated from modelling, are estimates, but they are robust, conservative and derived from a model that has been consistently used elsewhere in Australia for these schemes. They provide a compelling case in support of this scheme, as does the experience on the ground in places like South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.
The improvement of energy efficiency through this scheme is a responsible and prudent response to addressing the impact of price increases on households, enhancing social equity and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the territory.
I commend the bill to the Assembly and table the following papers:
Regulatory impact statement.
Energy Efficiency (Cost of Living) Improvement (Energy Savings Contribution) Determination 2012 (No 1)—Draft.
Energy Efficiency (Cost of Living) Improvement (Energy Savings Target and Emissions Factor) Determination 2012 (No 1)—Draft.
Energy Efficiency (Cost of Living) Improvement (Priority Household Target) Determination 2012 (No 1)—Draft.
Debate (on motion by Mr Seselja) adjourned to the next sitting.
