Costa Rica on the road to become 100% renewable

Costa Rica has generated 95% of its electricity from renewable sources over the last four years using rivers, volcanos, wind and solar power. Moreover, the country is ready to phase out of the use of fossil fuels altogether, as the country has spent 1,197 days over the last few years, using renewable energy exclusively.

Most of the country’s renewable energy comes for hydroelectric plants – using mainly rivers – followed by geothermal. Wind and solar represent 11.11% of the total energy supply, and 0.73% from biomass.
