      Stephe Yborra

Stephe leads the Y&A team, applying over 35 years of sales, marketing and business development experience to help clients achieve their goals. Most of his career has focused on advancing greater use of new and emerging natural gas technologies. Prior to founding Y&A, for 13 years, Stephe played a pivotal role in the natural gas vehicle (NGV) industry serving concurrently as Director of Market Development at NGVAmerica (NGVA) and Director of Market Analysis, Education & Communications at the Clean Vehicle Education Foundation (CVEF). Stephe’s educational workshops, speaking engagements at national fleet oriented events, authoritative articles in trade publications, national accounts work and other industry-leading market development initiatives have earned him worldwide recognition as a top NGV expert.

Prior to working on NGV issues, Stephe was president of Energystics, an energy technologies consulting practice he founded in 1996 to help government and private industry commercialize advanced gas-fired cooling, distributed generation and industrial technologies. Clients included the Gas Technology Institute, US Department of Energy, a variety of HVAC/R and industrial process equipment manufacturers and leading national accounts in the restaurant, retail, healthcare and commercial building management sectors. Energystics’ project management services included initial assessment of feasibility, technology deployment, measurement/verification, cost-benefit analysis and - on government funded projects - dissemination of demonstration project results and findings.

From 1986-1996, he held various advertising, communications and marketing positions at the Washington, DC-based American Gas Association where he worked with energy service providers, manufacturers, and national accounts to promote new and emerging energy technologies. Stephe attended Rutgers, Drexel and Temple Universities, earning Bachelor's degrees in Communications and Marketing.
