Answers to questions

Housing ACT—energy efficiency(Question No 368)

Mr Cain asked the Minister for Housing and Suburban Development, upon notice, on 6 August 2021:

Of the stock of housing managed by Housing ACT, can the minister advise the (a) number of dwellings under management by Housing ACT, excluding social and community housing, (b) average energy efficiency rating of dwellings and (c) number of dwellings with (i) rooftop solar panels, (ii) a household battery storage system, (iii) with a gas connection, (iv) a gas-powered water heater, (v) a heat pump water heater, (vi) gas-powered heating and (vii) electric-powered heating.

Ms Berry: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

Of the stock of housing managed by Housing ACT, can the minister advise; the

(a) The number of dwellings under management by Housing ACT, excluding social and community housing,

As of 30 June 2021, Housing ACT provided tenancy services to 10,853 public housing properties.

(b) average energy efficiency rating of dwellings; and

Housing ACT does not have an average energy efficiency rating of the dwellings within the portfolio as there is currently no agreed upon tool for measuring energy efficiency in existing dwellings. The ACT Government is currently undertaking work to address this.

(c) number of dwellings with (i) rooftop solar panels, (ii) a household battery storage system, (iii) with a gas connection, (iv) a gas-powered water heater, (v) a heat pump water heater, (vi) gas-powered heating and (vii) electric-powered heating.

Housing ACT is unable to provide an accurate report on any of the above, as we currently do not have a complete dataset of the number of dwellings with the above connections or appliances. The collection of this data across the Housing ACT portfolio, will predominantly be captured through the Property Condition Assessments (PCAs) currently being undertaken by the Total Facilities Manager, Programmed Facility Management.


Housing ACT—properties(Question No 380)

Mr Parton asked the Minister for Housing and Suburban Development, upon notice, on 6 August 2021:

(1) How many properties did Housing ACT have in the categories of (a) three, (b) four, (c) five and (d) six bedroom public housing properties, on (i) 1 July 2018, (ii) 1 July 2019, (iii) 1 July 2020 and (iv) 1 July 2021.
