Redas president thinks that the authorities will act where and if necessary to maintain a stable and sustainable real estate market.

Regardless of the uneven new house sales performance across various projects and sections, Real Estate Developers’ Association of Singapore (Redas) president Chia Ngiang Hong anticipates the private residential market to remain stable in accordance with economic fundamentals, reported The Business Times.

“At the start of the year, many analysts anticipate new house sales for the year 2020 to remain resilient and approximately match 2019’s degree. Prices of new houses are not expected to change considerably,” explained Chia.

That is notwithstanding the remaining matter of land developers over the long run supply and buildup of unsold inventory.

Chia is convinced that the authorities will act where and if necessary to maintain a stable and sustainable real estate market.

In fact, the very powerful”growth in fixed asset investments and foreign direct investments in 2019 despite powerful headwinds is testament to this. Our monetary and fiscal systems are well managed and seem”, he said.

He also considers that the financial fundamentals of this city-state remain solid, together with Singapore continued to attract talent, companies, global capital and investments.

Chia noted that”opportunities abound to us to utilize our authorities and city planners to further build, transform and modernise Singapore”.

These factors, according to him, can help strengthen and encourage the market’s expansion while maintaining the real estate companies and the market stable and resilient, and despite the current challenges at the macro-environment.

Sengkang Central Buangkok price

“This is part of this new national solar target to work towards at least 2GWp from 2030, as announced in October 2019 from the authorities,” said HDB at a release on Monday (30 December).

It noticed that the new 540 MWp target could generate 648 GWh of clean energy annually, which is sufficient to power around 135,000 four-room flats and reduce carbon emissions by 324,000 tonnes each year.

For official The Sengkang Central Buangkok price visit the site.

“In comparison, this could increase clean energy generation by 145% in the last target,” it said.

HDB explained that it’s able to make bolder strides in harnessing solar power as advances in PV technology enabled them to generate more solar energy in precisely the same amount of space on HDB rooftops.

Monocrystalline Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell panels, for instance, are more popular than polycrystalline panels as they can covert about 20 percent of sun into electricity. The latter can convert just about 16%.

For this, a number of those formerly unsuitable rooftop spaces, such as point cubes and partially shaded areas, can currently be installed with solar panels.

About 2,500 longer HDB blocks are in the progress of being installed with solar panels will start installation shortly.

The solar power is used to power the cubes’ lifts, lights and water pumps. On average, these HDB blocks achieve net-zero energy intake within shared areas. Excessive solar power is channelled back into Singapore’s electrical grid.

Meanwhile, HDB also called the fifth solar leasing tender beneath its SolarNova programme.

To insure 1,154 HDB blocks and 46 government websites, the latest tender will”reap 60 MWp of solar power islandwide, creating more clean energy and helping to decrease carbon emissions”.

HDB revealed that the six agencies will take part in the SolarNova tender, together with the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) and Land Transport Authority (LTA) participating for the first time.

The solar leasing tender closes 2 March 2020, and can be defined as awarded in the next quarter of 2020. Installation of these PV systems is slated for completion by the first quarter of 2023.

“Although studies have proven that the up-leg of the cost cycle will last 8.7 quarters, but by means of the global headwinds pushed by social and political worries, it may be better to err on the side of caution and pick a shorter time frame of 6 quarters as the base case,” the report composed.

For the year ended 30 September, earnings also decreased 12.2percent to $3.8 billion.

For this, a final dividend of 3.6 Singapore pennies was suggested down from 6.2 pennies for FY2018.
