Dunsky Energy Consulting provides strategic analysis and counsel in the areas of energy efficiency, demand-side renewable energy and sustainable mobility. Based in Montreal, we support our clients across North America through three key services: we assess opportunities (technical, economic and market), design strategies (programs, policies and regulatory) and evaluate performance.

Working at the nexus of management consulting and clean energy, we are looking for an individual who is well-organized, able to clearly communicate concepts and build relationships, and has the experience and proven ability to successfully manage projects of a technical or strategic nature.

Required skills & experience:

• Fundamental understanding of technical issues, economics and/or markets as they pertain to demand-side energy resources; and
• Proven analytical skills.

Consulting:
• Demonstrable experience in (or skill for) understanding client needs, asking the right questions, synthesizing complex information and devising actionable recommendations
• Superior ability to develop and structure logical arguments and analysis; and
• Demonstrated project management experience and/or skills.

General:

• Strong interpersonal skills and ability to work with clients and within a team of bright and committed people.

Preferred qualities:
• Significant experience planning, designing and/or evaluating energy efficiency (and other demand-side energy resource) programs or policies;
• Particular strengths in building science, statistical analysis, and/or policy and strategic thinking skills;
• French language capabilities, including writing; and
• Motivation to contribute to building a better world.

Our ideal candidate would work out of our Montreal office; however, we are open to considering candidates who would work remotely from another North American location.

RESPONSIBILITIES

At Dunsky, our Consultants (generally a minimum of 5-10 years of experience) contribute to projects for clients across Canada and the U.S., and advise key decision-makers and influencers on sustainable energy strategies.

Specifically, Consultants manage small projects or tasks within larger projects, both with minimal supervision. Consultants independently develop methodologies, perform general analysis and interpretation, and prepare reports for their projects or tasks. They are also expected to contribute to solving technical research problems and handle multiple tasks on different projects. Finally, consultants play a role in managing client relationships and assist in business development.
