The Off the Grid Club

EnergyNet launched the Off the Grid Club at the Africa Energy Forum 2016- a new membership programme developed to bring together credible off grid technology providers, financiers and regional leaders to invest in and develop reliable and scalable power solutions for Africa. The programme provides a platform for members to form partnerships, giving them the opportunity to scale up their products and bring them to market more quickly. We are currently looking to grow the members of the club to enhance our off grid community. To find out more or to become a member of the Club, please email OTGC@energynet.co.uk
 
To celebrate the launch, African artists came together to perform in a special gig to raise awareness of the importance of energy access. The gig was organised in partnership with Shake Your Power, one of the Founding Members of the Club. Music was used as a way of communicating to and uniting the audience, and to recognise how commercial off grid solutions can play a significant role in electrifying Africa. To find out more, visit the Club website

About Copenhagen

 
Each of Copenhagen’s many boroughs features its own distinctive character. Nørrebro and Vesterbro are the city’s trendiest areas, with a wide array of modern designer shops, excellent restaurants, trendy cafes and bars. Østerbro and Frederiksberg are more stylish and dotted with parks and gardens.
 
Christianshavn is romantic, with its historic half-timbered houses, cobbled streets and canals running through the city, while the city centre is the original heart of Copenhagen, where you will also find the most famous attractions. Copenhagen is currently expanding with new urban districts – Nordhavn and Ørestad – where you will discover a different type of urban, contemporary and distinctive architecture. Best of all, everything is within walking distance and easily accessible.
 
Gastronomy, design and architecture are keywords in the beautiful Scandinavian capital. Copenhagen is a veritable shopping mecca, offering the very best of traditional Scandinavian design and fashion. 
 
The residents of Copenhagen actively use their city, particularly during the summer months as public areas, parks and squares become venues for concerts, pop-up restaurants, festivals and cultural experiences. The Danes have been named the world’s happiest people and certainly have a high standard of living – but they were also named one of the world’s most productive workforces by the UN and share a common identity as a knowledge society.

Terminology:

GDP data 
Use GDP data to get an indicator of the economic health of a nation. Nominal GDP. Nominal GDP provides you with the value of current production at current market prices. Figures are not adjusted for inflation. Note: nominal GDP is also known as "current dollar GDP" or "chained dollar GDP."

Real GDP 
Real GDP provides you with an inflation-adjusted measure, reflecting the value of all goods and services produced in a given year. Note: Real GDP often referred to as ‘constant-price,’ ‘inflation-corrected’ GDP or ‘constant dollar GDP’.

GDP per Capita 
GDP per Capita details the total output of a country divided by population.

Budget balance (% of GDP)
Budget balance (% of GDP) Compare what a country owes against what it produces. The debt-to-GDP ratio indicates a country's ability to pay back its debt. Often expressed as a percentage, this ratio can be interpreted as the number of years needed to pay back debt if GDP is dedicated entirely to debt repayment.

Current Account Balance (US$) percentage of GDP
