Costa Rican plans to invest huge amount to prioritize biomass

Costa Rican authorities have stated plans for the establishment of power plants capable of generating a combined 412MW of electricity, backed by an estimated investment of $539 million. These plants will prioritize biomass, wind, and solar resources.

Franz Tattenbach, Costa Rica’s Environment and Energy Minister, has highlighted recent legislative actions, including a decree issued in February, aimed at promoting the adoption of energy generated from biomass.

The proposed installations are expected to contribute 270MW from solar, 122MW from wind, and 20MW from biomass sources.

The Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE), in partnership with public-private collaborations, will lead the development efforts.

This initiative underscores ICE’s proactive approach to enhancing renewable energy infrastructure, with plans to commence operations within the next two years, as stated by the organization.
