I highly recommend Scott Hempling. I have known him since 2003, since he was a consultant for the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission on various important and cutting-edge policy regulatory matters in Hawaii, through his time as the Executive Director at the National Regulatory Research Institute. His expertise, knowledge, and experience in all regulatory and energy matters is unmatched, and he would be a highly valuable resource and asset in any such endeavor.
— Carlito P. Caliboso, former Chairman, Hawaii Public Utilities Commission
While we will dearly miss you as NRRI's Executive Director—where you have been so invaluable—I am delighted that you will now be in the classroom enlightening and sparking the interest of the next generation.
— Paul J. Roberti, Commissioner, Rhode Island Public Utilities Commission
Scott Hempling has that rare combination of qualities that enables him to work comfortably with high-level commissioners as well as make sense of complicated issues for entry-level professionals. He possesses a unique ability to synthesize key points of a discussion quickly, then formulate those concepts for critical problem-solving. Perhaps most remarkably, I have seen Scott use his keen ability to speak the "language" of a regulator to transcend a Spanish language barrier and contribute greatly to our U.S. State Department project focused on electric integration in Central America.
