Now Costa Rica bids for world’s cleanest transport
Riding atop one of the world’s greenest electrical grids, Costa Rica is now aiming for the next logical step: having the cleanest transport system on the planet.
Internationally hailed for meeting over 98 percent of electricity demand from renewable sources two years in a row, Costa Rica is miles ahead of most nations – developing or industrialised – on the allegorical road to a carbon-free future.
But on the actual road, fossil-fuelled vehicles prevail. With clean electricity sorted by its natural abundance of hydroelectricity and geothermal resources, Costa Rica’s dirty transport is taking centre stage in its climate policies.
