It gives me great pleasure to provide a reference for Hans.
I met Hans through his Energy Web Global initiative. Through our ongoing direct communications, I have found him to be intelligent, insightful, and very knowledgeable about global energy resources, sectors and complementary industries.
His writing skills are outstanding; his articles are well researched, have great depth and breadth, and his perspective is well defended by quantitative and qualitative analysis.
Besides the nitty-gritty details, there is a humorous undercurrent in his message delivery which makes the subject matter engaging in an otherwise boring space.
His experience in the energy industries is deep and diverse. Hans can reconcile conflicting theories, cultural values and frameworks in a very succinct manner to find the commonalities not always obvious to other stakeholders.
Lastly, I appreciate his passion of sharing “Lessons Learned from East & West” to empower the people in the Emerging Economies of our global community.

“Hans Hyde is a highly respected professional with a strong combination of practical field experience and astute theoretical insight. His broad interests and knowledge of energy resources and conversion systems, both fossil and renewable, set him apart from most energy experts. Hans critically observes and analyses with extraordinary skill, encompassing technical, economic, socio-political, and pragmatic/logistical concerns. His experience and research interests have been worldwide. He focuses on specific project details and local objectives but always with global perspective. I recommend Hans without reservation.“

“Hans Hyde stands out as an excellent commentator on energy resources and conversion systems.
His approach towards analysis is unprejudiced, taking into consideration equally, limitations and benefits of each power generation technology and fuel type; i.e. nuclear, fossil fuels or renewables, unlike other analysts. His research, study and presentations, contain global aspects and components to them. His diverse worldwide experience, across the energy sectors, makes him an excellent pundit of the contemporary energy industry.
I have been following Hans’ insightful posts for more than 3 years and became an avid fan of his clear, insightful analysis and observations of the industry. I would love to work with Hans and would recommend him without doubt.“

I have communicated with Hans on several sites over the past several years. Sometimes we argued, other times we were in “violent agreement,” but through all of this, I believe that we have both benefitted.
Hans has an excellent grasp of the energy situation and systems, and has been very active in discussions on a practical and positive way forward. We need more people like him; prepared to challenge the status quo, but equally to challenge the activists with extreme ideas and little background.
I have enjoyed a growing relationship with Hans as a colleague and as a friend.

I’ve never met Hans personally, but I know him well through is intelligent, thoughtful and well-researched commentary on LinkedIn and through his publications. Hans has an encyclopedic knowledge of the energy sector. He reasons with authority based on detailed knowledge gained from extensive direct experience and substantial reading and research in this sector on an ongoing basis.
Most importantly, he is an independent thinker whose point of view isn’t ideological but rather is subject to change when presented with new information. That key strength keeps him from falling into the ruts that many “experts” in the energy sector seem to live in.
If you want to discover what’s really going on in the energy sector rather than just hearing the so-called conventional wisdom or the latest hype from interested parties, Hans is who you should talk to.
