This is an excerpt from our 16th Anniversary newsletter. Read more to learn about our People, Clients, Tools, and Impact
At the end of the day, the impact of our company is largely defined by the projects we deliver. Since 2004, we have substantially grown the volume of our work—and more importantly—we have continually increased the quality and variety of the support we provide to our clients.
When we opened our doors in 2004, our founder, Philippe Dunsky, offered clients his expertise in energy efficiency. Since then, we have expanded our expertise to encompass the three pillars of the clean energy transition: efficiency, renewables and mobility.
Across these three areas, we’ve developed an integrated approach that recognizes their critical interplays, and that maintains a broader focus on helping our clients find the best path toward responsibly and effectively achieving their clean energy goals.
Over time, our service offering has grown as well:
- Quantifying Opportunities: We’ve developed sophisticated models to quantify the technical, economic and real-world market potential for each clean energy solution.
- Designing strategies: We’ve also expanded our strategic work: historically focused on designing go-to market programs, we now address the full array of options – from enabling tools like innovative financing mechanisms or building disclosure rules to comprehensive decarbonization plans and policies.
- Evaluating Performance: Our evaluation practice has grown as well, with an unwavering emphasis on continuous improvement so that our clients not only know how well their efforts have performed but, critically, how to squeeze more value from them going forward.
The expansion of our focus areas and services has allowed us to support a greater number of projects each year. In 2004 we were thrilled to deliver a handful of projects; in 2019, we delivered nearly 70. In total, our team has undertaken more than 400 different projects for clients across North America. As we look toward the future of the clean energy transition, we are more focused than ever on ensuring our clients—old and new—trust and turn to us to help address their challenges.
We’re Celebrating our 16th Anniversary
Founded in 2004, the Dunsky team has grown over time into one of North America’s premiere clean energy advisory firms, with a team of 35 extraordinary professionals and a clientele of over 150 utilities, governments and other clean energy leaders.
As we enter our 17th year of business, we’re taking the opportunity to reflect on how far we’ve come, and where we’re headed. To kick-start that reflection, we’re shining a light on the things that matter most to us: our Projects, People, Clients, Tools, and Impact. We hope you’ll enjoy learning more about our history, as we look toward building a cleaner energy future.
