Martha Broad

Executive Director MIT Energy Initiative


Martha Broad, MITEI’s executive director, manages MITEI’s finance, communications, education, member services, and operations teams. In addition, she collaborates with DOE and Stanford University to design, manage, and host the annual Clean Energy Education and Empowerment (C3E) Women in Clean Energy Symposium and serves as a C3E Ambassador. Broad arrived at MITEI in 2013 from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, where as part of the senior management, she oversaw programs and studies that supported commercialization of various clean energy technologies. She also conceived and implemented the center’s framework for university partnerships. With her help in leveraging universities and public and private partners, MassCEC facilitated the state’s successful installation of hundreds of megawatts of wind and solar systems. In the past, Broad worked with MITEI on joint initiatives and, earlier in her career, was a research associate for the MIT Center for Coordination Science.
