Green Star Alternative Energy, Inc. (Pink Sheets: GSAE) is taking a leadership position in promoting renewable energy to combat climate change and meet rising energy demand. Green Star is acquiring Notos d.o.o. to become the Republic of Serbia's first wind power developer. Notos was invited by the Slovenian Ministry of Energy to represent Serbia's alternative energy sector at the Bled Strategic Forum on "Energy and Climate Change: Si.nergy for the Future" held in Slovenia on August 31st and September 1st. At this key international summit the Green Star and Notos team participated in strategic discussions with high level government representatives, EU officials, private sector leaders, energy industry experts on the challenges of energy security and climate change.
The third annual Bled Strategic Forum addressed soaring oil and gas prices, public concern over growing dependence on imports of energy resources, and the mounting evidence of global warming. The summit was attended by approximately 400 participants from more than 50 countries. Its objective was to bring together world leaders to develop and commit to solutions and stimulate public-private sector cooperation.
The Green Star and Notos team had strategic meetings with key officials including the Prime Ministers of Slovenia, Latvia and the Czech Republic, Minister of Environmental Protection for the Republic of Serbia, Minister of Economy for Slovenia, Deputy State Secretary of Denmark's Ministry of Climate and Energy and the Minister in Shadow for Energy, Industry and Postal affairs of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The team also met with high level representatives from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Columbia University, the Business Advisory Council for South Eastern Europe and the World Renewable Council.
Miodrag Andric, President of Notos, commented: "At this important forum leaders from government, energy and science came together to forge solutions to the challenges of energy security and climate change. Increased use of domestic renewable resources to decrease reliance on foreign imports and reduce emissions was a key element of the discussions. As Serbia's first developer of wind power we were honored to be able to offer our insight and expertise."
J. M. De Castro, CFO of Green Star Alternative Energy, stated: "Increased use of renewable resources is critical to a sustainable energy future for Europe and the world. Green Star Alternative Energy is committed to developing more than 300 megawatts of clean, homegrown wind power."
