Marvin Quitoras is a senior analyst with the Renewables in Remote Communities program and will be working primarily in Natural Resources Canada's Indigenous Off-Diesel Initiative (IODI). His work involves modelling and analyzing energy systems to frame robust policies that will increase renewable energy uptake among remote communities in Canadian provinces and the territories.

Marvin is a PhD candidate at the Institute for Integrated Energy Systems, University of Victoria. He is also a PhD fellow for Marine Environmental Observation, Prediction and Response Network. His doctoral work focuses on novel holistic approaches on how to link policy, clean energy innovations, and robust energy modelling techniques to help build more resilient and cost-effective energy systems for the Canadian Arctic and remote communities in general. In summer 2019, he conducted a PhD research fellowship to one of the leading and largest sustainable energy research centres in the UK, Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology. Through the Mitacs Accelerate program, he also worked with World Wildlife Fund – Canada in establishing the first Inuit energy cooperative in Gjoa Haven, Nunavut. Prior to his PhD, Marvin worked in a private corporate organization as a mechanical engineer developing hydro power and ocean wave energy projects for remote communities in the Southeast Asia region. Marvin has a master’s degree in energy engineering with a specialization in techno-economic modeling of ocean wave energy.
