Mohammed Raees Dangor is an Electrical Engineer. He completed his MSc degree in Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand where his work entailed developing the solar aspects of the PeCo Power technology. He is currently working towards his PhD which focuses on improving access to online education by exploring the digital and energy poverty that hinders students from accessing online education. The energy aspect of his research aligns with his role at PeCo Power which focuses on business development and the roll-out of the technology in various markets. He seeks to use the PeCo technology as an intervention to power the ICT tools required for accessing online education. This in turn will mitigate the impact that energy poverty has on students’ access to online education.
