(1) What projects or initiatives does the Directorate have planned in the 2012-13 financial year to reduce energy usage.

(2) What is the cost associated with each project or initiative.

(3) What is the estimated reduction in energy usage as a result of the project or initiative.

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

(1) Seven sites within the Directorate have registered with the ACTSmart Government Energy and Water Program. All sites will undergo an Energy and Water Assessment by an Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate assessor. A comprehensive report identifying areas where sites can improve energy (and water) efficiency, with data on estimated cost and resource savings and greenhouse gas reductions, will be received. It is anticipated that site assessments will be completed by the end of December 2012.
