The enthusiasm about smart grid continues to spread in the Pacific Northwest.  Tomorrow, Intel’s Ronler Acres Campus (just outside of Portland) will host "Demystifying the Smart Grid," a panel and dinner event from 6 to 9 PM that will bring together industry experts and capital providers to discuss smart grid opportunities and the direction of current smart grid policy.  The event is being organized by the Oregon chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs ("TiE Oregon")  in order to spur the exchange of ideas and information among entrepreneurs and innovators in the smart grid space.  Stoel Rives is proud to be a Charter Member of TiE Oregon.  My colleagues, Todd Bauman and Scott Olson will be in attendance.  To register for the event and view the list of panelists, click here.
