Women in Energy Story Telling: Mr Imron Bhatti - ICER

Ophelia Basgal, currently HUD's regional administrator in San Francisco, served previously as the vice president of community relations for Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), one of the USA's largest utilities.
"While my career in energy was in a non-technical role, my biggest challenge was learning the complexities of service delivery," she said, "I had tremendous mentors in the company that helped me overcome that hurdle." Basgal stresses the importance of mentorship for women in energy. "I applaud any formal or informal mentoring opportunity, especially woman to woman opportunities as the industry leaderships tends to be dominated by men," she said, speaking of WiE's pilot e-mentoring program for women. Basgal speaks proudly of the work that women at HUD and the nonprofit housing sector have achieved in not only increasing energy efficiency in affordable housing, but also promoting energy conservation with the families who reside in the units.
