We have manufacturing in our DNA.” Michigan has manufacturing capacity, a workforce, and “engineers who know how to solve problems,” Governor Granholm said. “So we are very excited. We are very bullish on the opportunities that clean-energy manufacturing provides.”
Governor Granholm thanked the National Academies’ STEP Board “for honoring our progress in the advanced battery industry in Michigan by convening this conference right here in our state.” She said that “I hope you have a fantastic conference, I hope you enjoy your stay here, and I invite you all to visit again to experience everything that is pure Michigan.”
