Isabel Taylor

Associate Consultant, Dunsky Energy + Climate Advisors

Isabel manages multiple projects at Dunsky, helping utility, government, corporate, and non-profit clients accelerate the clean energy transition and move toward a low-carbon future. She combines a deep understanding of Canada’s energy and climate policy landscape with a strong aptitude for quantitative analysis and modeling.

Isabel is currently leading work for BC Hydro and Foresight Canada to assess the value and potential applications of bidirectional electric vehicle charging (i.e. “V2X”) in British Columbia. As part of this project, she interviewed several fleet operator customers of BC Hydro and international V2X experts, identifying key challenges and opportunities to scale V2X for a diverse suite of applications, including Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) use cases, across the province. 

Prior to joining Dunsky, Isabel worked for Environment and Climate Change Canada, where she was a core member of the department’s economic modeling team responsible for modeling several key federal climate policies, including carbon pollution pricing, the clean fuel regulations, the oil and gas emissions cap, and federal investments and budget measures. Among her numerous projects, Isabel was part of the small team behind the modeling for Canada’s 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan. 

Isabel holds a master’s degree in Environment and Sustainability from Western University, a bachelor’s degree in Arts & Science from McMaster University, and a professional certificate in Clean Power from Imperial College London. An avid problem-solver, Isabel is passionate about advancing innovative solutions—including smart, scalable technologies like V2G—to power Canada’s resilient, sustainable energy future.
