On Aug. 15, Green Energy Renewable Solutions filed several amendments to its Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State office inFlorida, where it is incorporated.

These amendments effectively changed the company's name to Cirque Energy. Also, the following officers of Cirque Energy have been approved as new members of Cirque's Board of Directors:

Most recently, Coté has been involved in the development of several energy projects including ethanol, biomass, waste to energy and agricultural products to energy. His role at Cirque Energy includes establishing and guiding overall business strategy, providing the vision and purpose to advance the company's mission and objectives, business development, project planning and execution, customer relations, and program management support.

Roger Silverthorn, CPA, CFO: Silverthorn has over 30 years of experience in the renewable energy business and power plant owner and operator of eight solid fuel biomass power plants in two countries and several states. He led the development of a vertically integrated fuel system in appropriate jurisdictions. Silverthorn was an early entrant to the renewable energy business when renewable power generation was in its infancy. He was among the first in the United States to develop a renewable energy marketing company.

Richard Fosgitt, vice president of technology and engineering: Fosgitt is a professional engineer with over 20 years of experience in the industrial, energy and development sectors. Most recently, he has recently been involved in the development of several energy projects including biomass, waste to energy, agricultural products to energy, and wind energy. His design experience on engineering projects of all sizes and with multiple energy systems allows him to assess customer demands and develop the optimum system to meet those needs within the required economic parameters. Fosgitt's expertise also includes site assessment, due diligence, environmental permitting, and engineering approvals.

Additionally, as previously approved by Green Energy's majority shareholders in May, the company authorized an increase in its capital stock to 300 million shares of common stock at a par value of 0.1 cents per share, 20 million shares of preferred stock at a par value of 0.1 cents per share. Each common share issued and outstanding shall be entitled to one vote and the preferred shares shall be designated by the board of directors. Green Energy intends to apply for a new trading symbol, and the company will continue to trade under its current symbol, EWRL, until a new trading symbol is assigned.

Said Cirque CEO Joseph DuRant: "Since the merger of Green Energy and Cirque Energy was announced in May, we have been working diligently to integrate all aspects of our respective organizations as quickly as possible. Completion of these final steps in the implementation of our merger allows Cirque Energy to move forward and establish a clear identity and strong presence in the waste-to-energy industry, with an appropriate capitalization to support our anticipated growth and take advantage of attractive business development opportunities."
