Abstract

Generating energy from eco-friendly renewable resources has become an imperative for the long-term sustenance of our planet. How did Costa Rica, a small Central American nation become the first to achieve 100% energy production from renewable sources? What are the advantages and disadvantages of different kinds of energy sources? This article examines Costa Rica’s achievement in the context of the current energy scenario in the world and also explores factors that might aid or hinder the development of renewable energy resources.
