About Dunsky

Founded in 2004, Dunsky supports leading governments, utilities, corporations and others across North America in their efforts to accelerate the clean energy transition, effectively, responsibly and at scale. Supporting clean energy and climate solutions is all we do, and is all we have done since our inception.

How we Work

Our seasoned team of 60+ professionals has supported leading clean energy and climate initiatives across North America for 20 years. We believe deeply that getting it right matters – for our clients, our communities, and our planet.

As a unique, hybrid firm – half engineering, half management consulting, ALL clean energy and climate – we create change for clients in two distinct ways: by providing rigorous Analysis of data, and by providing ambitious yet practical Strategy support.

We help our clients assess the potential for adoption of clean energy solutions, be they for buildings, transportation, industry or energy systems as a whole. We do this holistically – simultaneously integrating all options across large markets – or individually, for a given technology, market segment, program strategy, or asset portfolio.

Whatever the breadth of solutions you are interested in, we can quantify the technical, economic and market opportunity it represents; assess its costs, benefits and risks; and help you make decisions with confidence.
It all starts with one question: what can be achieved?

  • Potential studies (technical, economic, market)
  • Cost-effectiveness analysis
  • Technology and market assessments
  • Asset optimization (buildings and vehicle fleets)
  • Decarbonization assessments
  • Market evaluations (process and impact)
  • Business cases

We help our clients design market, policy, regulatory or business strategies that achieve real-world results. They are effective because they are rooted in an understanding of real-world market dynamics; because they account for lessons learned elsewhere (often the hard way); because they are adjusted to local contexts, characteristics and market intelligence; and because they are built on a deep foundation of experience, insight and care for strong outcomes.

Whether it’s designing specific policies, comprehensive plans, incentive programs, financing strategies, laws and regulations or other tools in the toolbox, we help ensure that your strategy is effective, and that your goals can actually be achieved.

A goal without a plan is just a wish. Services include:

  • Policies & frameworks
  • Comprehensive plans
  • Incentive programs
  • Financing mechanisms
  • Market-enabling strategies
  • Rate design
  • Codes & standards
  • Strategic evaluations
  • Process evaluations
  • Equity analyses
