An industry veteran, Steven will lead GlassPoint’s growth plans, diversifying its project portfolio in new markets in the Middle East and North America and commercializing its next generation technologies.
Managing global operations from Muscat, Oman, Moss will oversee GlassPoint’s expanding global business, including the landmark Miraah solar plant under development with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) and the Belridge Solar project with Aera Energy in California, USA.
Moss is a global executive with 30 years’ experience in the energy and aerospace sectors. He most recently served as the CEO of General Electric’s (GE) global Renewable Steam Plants business, where he oversaw the delivery of geothermal, biomass and solar thermal plant solutions around the world.
As the head of the renewable steam plants division at GE, and previously Alstom Power, Moss was responsible for the commercial deployment of its concentrating solar power (CSP) products, including the development and manufacture of GE’s solar tower receiver and storage technology.
Before leading the renewables plant group, Moss served as the Vice President for Industrial Steam Turbines at Alstom Power, where he drove Alstom’s re-entry into the industrial steam turbines market establishing its global operations. He also served as Managing Director of Alstom Aerospace and prior to that the Managing Director of Areva’s Research & Technology division focused on innovations in electrical transmission and distribution.
With a Ph. D. in Mechanical Engineering, Moss started his career as a gas turbine engineer and held several engineering leadership positions before joining the corporate management ranks.
Steven Moss commented, “GlassPoint’s commercial and technical decisions over the years have impressed me, and have established the company as the clear market leader. Our solar oilfield technology is playing a trend-setting role in uniting the renewables and oil and gas industries to produce today’s energy at lower costs and with less environmental impact. I look forward to leading the next chapter in GlassPoint’s success story.”
