Nii then pursued a Masters in Engineering Management at Brunel University in 2011. His dissertation centred around Power Generation Project Management in Ghana; inspired by his experiences on Power Generation Projects in Ghana.  Nii then joined an IPP whose model centred around innovative fuel use for distributed generation power plants for industry, mainly running on Propane, Butane, Natural Gas, Isopentane, PRB Coal and Biomass . Working as a Power Generation Projects Manager piqued his interest in innovative fuel technologies as well as renewable power generation.
