AGO AG Energie + Anlagen (cusip number: A0LR41; ISIN: DE000A0LR415) welcomed the Federal Minister of Economics, Michael Glos, for an intensive exchange in the subjects climate protection, energy efficiency and renewable energies by using emissions trading. The minister especially focused on AGO AG's climate protection program. Prior to this latest meeting, Hans Ulrich Gruber, member of AGO AG's Board, and Michael Glos already had several conversations on that subject. This climate protection program's target is the switch from fossil fuels such as oil and gas to wood chips. The Joint Implementation program developed by AGO AG for medium-sized industrial companies by means of changing the fuel generates tradeable CO2 certificates which can be sold at market price.

Michael Glos emphasized that energy efficiency measures in medium-sized industrial companies should be pushed more in order to make so far unused potentials accessible. He also mentioned AGO AG Energie + Anlagen as an innovative partner in terms of regenerative energy supply and as an expert in the field of energy efficiency. AGO AG was a co-operation partner of Deutsche Energieagentur within the nationwide campaign "energy efficient systems in industry and trade". "The combination of energy efficiency and renewable energy will in medium-term be the future for Germany", according to Mr. Glos. Apart from the Minister of Economics, also the member of the Bundestag, Mr. Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg was AGO's guest. "Energy is a major subject which will accompany our century. AGO AG Energie + Anlagen, apart from other Bavarian companies, brings along the corresponding innovation in order for us to face this challenge. That was already demonstrated on the 1. Northern Bavarian Energy Day which AGO AG organized together with BF/M Bayreuth and KNF on 17 July in the castle of Thurnau" according to Mr. Guttenberg.

Subsequent to the visit of AGO AG Energie + Anlagen, Michael Glos was available for an entrepreneurial conversation. Therefore, local economists were asked to gather around a round table with the Upper Franconian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in charge.
