Siraj Taj

Principal, ST Power Services Consultants, LLC


Technical. Commercial. Operational. Knowledge. Siraj Taj is the rare power industry consultant who understands every side of the business — because he’s been there.

In his 32-year career, Siraj has become an expert in all facets of the thermal power generation industry: operations & maintenance, engineering, business process management, project management, marketing, and contract management.

When his employer Alstom was acquired by GE in 2015, Siraj weighed his next move. “Come and sit on our side of the table,” a longtime power-plant client urged him. That’s what Siraj did. As Principal of ST Power Services Consultants, LLC, he brought the knowledge he’d gained working for an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) and used it to benefit plant owners and operators.

Since 2016 Siraj and his firm, ST Power Services, have enabled thermal power plants to remain viable and profitable by devising solutions that are Innovative, Collaborative, and Pragmatic. Siraj’s expertise delivers life-cycle cost savings of 35%+ while positioning thermal plants well for transitioning to a clean energy future. Over the course of 65+ projects, Siraj has helped thermal plants save more than $215 million on their LTSAs, achieve more than $210 million life-cycle cost savings, and improve total asset performance.

Depending on the day, you might find Siraj in overalls and hard hat, working shoulder-to-shoulder with the plant O&M team. You might find him negotiating LTSAs on behalf of plant owners. Or you might find him on a panel at a conference, offering insights on industry trends.

Now, ST Power Services has become the industry’s knowledge hub for all things related to Alstom, GE, Siemens and other gas turbines, as well as overall plant operations and maintenance strategy in a rapidly shifting energy landscape. Siraj is frequently asked to speak at leading industry events, such as Experience POWER and the AOG Annual Conference, and has contributed to POWER Magazine.

Siraj resides near Washington D.C., and is married with two children. He enjoys traveling, reading, golfing, fishing, and spending time with his family.
