The Pure Energy Centre is delighted to announce that Elizabeth Johnson has been honoured and made an MBE (Member of the British Empire). Elizabeth was informed of her honour when she was abroad in Greece. She was on a business trip related to renewable and hydrogen technologies.

Elizabeth was made an MBE for her achievements and support to the renewable industry and her charity fundraising work. She is one of only two Shetlanders who have been awarded with such honour.

Mrs. Johnson is an Unst born businesswoman, mother of four and renewable passionate.  She said about her honour: ‘I am just like everyone else, an ordinary person from a community, living on an island and trying to do my job to the best of my abilities and knowledge. I was positively shocked and could not believe it. When my husband Ivor called, I told him it is a joke. But he insisted and then it sunk in’.

Elizabeth who is the business development manager for the Pure Energy Centre added she did not expect to be honoured.
