Dr Watt in a few words
Dr Watt is a package of measures. It is an online tool coupled with an offline training program and also an online wiki populated collaboratively.
Dr Watt is a tool to take the cooperative engagement of the members to the next level. The Tupperwatt groups that are formed through the offline training are a great way to create a sense of community amongst the members. Those groups are fertile grounds to make the energy more tangible to the members and therefore help them to save KWh.
A business model
The Dr Watt training program is deployed as a paid service to the members or external organisations. Currently at Enercoop, the training costs for a single person is 39 euros and for an organisation 500 euros for a group of 20 participants.

Ana Rita from Coopernico
"The Tupperwatt meetings were very important to provide new energy saving tips for households, but also to join Coopérnico’ members of each region in Portugal and bring more citizens to join the cooperative. The attendance was so good and the results were so positive that Coopérnico will continue to organize the Tupperwatt meetings with the support of its local members."
Marc from Som Energia
"To go deeper to engage our relationship with our members, setting up Tupperwatt meetings was the opportunity to improve all of our other actions that we're doing to reduce our energy consumption. Implement specific meeting with our member to talking about energy saving and our energy saving reports (Infoenergia reports), was excellent to improve our services and the efficiency knowledge from our members."
