Crystal has the broadest and deepest resume that I’ve ever seen. That accumulated knowledge and experience is clearly important. But even more important, is Crystal’s professionalism, work ethic, and honesty. I have worked with her for several years in different capacities as both a professional colleague and a contracted consultant. Crystal has a nearly unique ability to provide the same level of effort and integrity to her work regardless of the particular consulting role that she is fulfilling. Refreshingly, when I am wrong, she will tell me so, whether I’m paying her or not. And, when she is working, she is working at 110% – Crystal does not have a slow speed. I highly recommend Crystal for any project management or engineering task that cannot wait for tomorrow.

NREL hired Crystal Xie to help develop permitting compliance tools to support the deployment of hydrogen technologies infrastructure. This project was very open ended with no clearly defined path to completion. Crystal has continuously evaluated the project position, determined the required next step, suggested actions to reach the next step, and effectively implemented these actions. This effort has required a combination of technical, project management, and personnel skills that she has blended to allow her to solve the numerous unforeseen problems this project has required to be addressed.

“Crystal is intelligent, humble, and driven. She is the type of person you want on your team. StratosFuel contracted with her to prepare a Market Analysis report, and she went over and beyond. The report has helped us gain a new approach to our business model, and has also open many doors in the hydrogen industry. Overall Crystal is a wonderful partner, and friend who I looked forward to working with on other projects.”
