Costa Rican authorities have announced plans for the construction of power plants with a collective capacity of 412MW, harnessed by an estimated investment of $539 million (€493 million).
The plants will focus on biomass, wind and solar resources.
Costa Rica's Environment and Energy Minister, Franz Tattenbach, has emphasised recent legislative measures that include a decree - issued in February - that intends to incentivise the adoption of biomass-generated energy.
The planned installations are projected to deliver 270 MWs from solar sources, 122MW from wind sources, and 20MW from
biomass sources.
Development will be spearheaded by the Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) in collaboration with public-private partnerships.
This initiative underscores ICE's proactive push toward bolstering renewable energy infrastructure, with the aim of commencing operations within the next two years, according to the organisation.
