  • Former Michigan Governor on Centennial for Auto Driving Efficiency Demo

    Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm visited Centennial Campus to participate in a demonstration of good driving habits to improve fuel efficiency.


    Granholm, who is currently a senior advisor with the Pew Charitable Trusts and a Distinguished Practitioner of Law and Public Public Policy at the University of California, participated in the demonstration with Terri Lomax, vice chancellor of research, innovation and economic development at NC State, and Phyllis Cuttino, Pew's clean energy director. The purpose of the demonstration was to show how better driving habits can improve a car's fuel efficiency as much as 15-30 percent. The demonstration was led by Joseph O'Neill, clean transportation specialist with NC State's Solar Center. 


    Granholm and Cuttino were in Raleigh as part of the Plug-in 2011 Conference. They also toured NC State's Solar Center.
