The WWF Arctic Programme

Martha Lenio

Specialist, Renewable Energy, Arctic


Dr. Lenio has a strong track record of work in the renewable energy industry.

Based out of WWF-Canada's Iqaluit office, she works to increase engagement in the north and develop stronger working relationships with the Government of Nunavut.

She has a BASc in Mechanical Engineering, a PhD in Photovoltaic Engineering, and has worked in sustainable building design, PV R&D, solar consulting, education, and is involved in numerous renewable energy non-profits and boards.

I love working at WWF, where my work is directly helping communities in Nunavut transition away from fossil fuel use, while helping to safeguard this unique area for future generations.
