Now Costa Rica bids for world’s cleanest transport

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

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.
