I am astonished, delighted and deeply, deeply honoured to receive this award. I have had a fantastic six and a half years working at the ETI with some amazing and talented people. Progress in engineering, innovation and complex systems is almost always made by teams rather than individuals and the ETI is a great example of this.
This award reflects the hard work and determination of everyone who has worked at the ETI, our project partners, members and advisors, but none more so than our dearly departed former Chief Executive Dr David Clarke whose leadership and vision inspired us all.
Jo has been a leading figure at the ETI, creating strong partnerships and modelling systems that will continue to have a significant impact on the advancement of low carbon technology in the energy sector, for years to come.
This award is a fitting recognition for her unwavering vision and passion, and her commitment to the industry sets an example for the next generation of engineers. We are incredibly proud of Jo for this award and on behalf of everyone at the ETI, I would like to congratulate her on her OBE.
