Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2019 Week 07 Hansard (Thursday, 1 August 2019) . . Page.. 2690 ..


(3) a) Electricity consumption from the transport sector is not currently reported separately to total electricity consumption figures.

b) The total annual electricity consumed by the Territory for 2017/2018 was 2,986 GWh. As a proportion of this total the Light Rail system is estimated to consume 2.77 GWh or 0.1% of the Territory total.

(4) Given that the anticipated total electricity consumption of the light rail overall would be a very small proportion of the Territory total, a model of the Light Rail impact upon the broader ACT power supply was not deemed necessary. However localised infrastructure impacts and requirements to support the introduction of Light Rail were considered in consultation with ActewAGL. It is noted that the Scoping Document for the Environmental Impact Statement for Light Rail Stage 1 (prepared by EPSDD) did not identify energy consumption of the system as a key issue requiring further investigation.

(5) Light Rail City to Woden will undertake similar investigations on the localised electrical power requirements as noted in question 4 above, with Technical Advisors, and in consultation with relevant electricity network providers.

Ms Stephen-Smith: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) Canberra Health Services and ACT Health Directorate were established as two distinct legal entities on 1 October 2018, through an Administrative Arrangements Order. The former Health Directorate became Canberra Health Services and the ACT Health Directorate was formed as a new legal entity. As such, expenditure for the ACT Health Directorate is based on the period 1 October 2018 to 31 March 2019.

(a) The projected expenditure for this period (1 October 2018 to 31 March 2019) was $139.74 million.
