The event will serve as a forum for industry, utility companies, academic and government researchers, and policy makers to discuss energy storage challenges in the Northwest region and across the country.    We have a sponsored reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 5 at the Hilton Garden Inn Corvallis, and a full-day meeting (with sponsored meals) on Nov. 6.
