The Founder, Chief Executive, and President of YCG, Hugh Youngblood, Jr.'s education includes a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Tulane University and graduate studies in Reliability Engineering and International Finance at the University of Maryland. Mr. Youngblood's professional background ranges across several fields, including vast experience in Engineering, International Finance, Quantitative Analysis, and Economics.
Hugh Youngblood became interested in the Renewable Energy market as an avenue to disrupt the corporate fossil energy establishment that largely controlled the United States during the Bush/Cheney administration. Mr. Youngblood initiated a concerted effort to conduct market research in the Renewable Energy sector in November, 2008 resulting in expanded interest in a wide array of established and emerging Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency, Energy Storage, Electric Transportation, and Smart Grid technologies as well as other segments of the broader Clean Technology market, such as Water and Greenhouse Gas management. Enactment of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 resulted in generous federal funding opportunities designated for Clean Technology projects, which provided additional reinforcement to Mr. Youngblood's motivation to enter the Clean Technology market space. YCG was founded to serve as a vehicle to develop a global portfolio of clean technology projects ranging in size and scope from community scale to commercial scale.
Mr. Youngblood has also been active within the District of Columbia for the past several years as a community organizer. He lives and operates in the politically charged neighborhood of Bloomingdale and aspires to attain public office in his sparse off-hours from the clean energy venture, YCG.
