Smart Grid is an exciting technology arena that will forever alter how customers think about electricity. The grid's move to a digital information network is a game-changer for an entire industry -- and an opportunity for thousands of entrepreneurs. This sector is attracting millions in investments and billions in federal funding.

How can NW technology entrepreneurs translate their strengths into new opportunities in this high-profile arena? Our presenting entrepreneur, David Kaplan, founder of V2Green (sold successfully to GridPoint in 2008), and a panel of experts including:
