“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.

“I had the pleasure of working for Hans when he owned Boreal Tree Service based in Portland, OR. I’ve known Hans for 20 years. I watched as he created and grew a successful tree service business in just a matter of months. Even with several, well established arbor companies in the area, Hans established himself as a knowledgeable, honest and customer service oriented business owner.
I enjoyed his passion for owning and growing his own company while maintaining a strong sense of ethics, which was evident with his skill level and how he interacted with people. One aspect of his personality that made him so successful is that he was great with people and didn’t just see them as customers. He educated them, spent time with them and almost always got the work. He was, and will continue to be, a true entrepreneur with great vision.“
