Costa Rica is one of the green gems in a world that runs itself ragged on nonrenewable energy. In 2015 and 2016, this republic in Central America used close to 100 percent renewable energy in the production of its electricity – 98.9 and 98.1 percent respectively in both years. By comparison, the USA used less than 15% renewables for energy during the same period, however this figure is rising. The Cost Rican Electricity Institute or ICE reported that the country’s renewable energy comes from wind turbines, hydroelectric power facilities, geothermal plants, solar panels and biomass. [1]

Non-renewable Energy Sources And Carbon Emissions



Compared to Costa Rica, less than 15 percent of the United States’ electricity production came from renewable sources. In a country that has close to 10 million square kilometers of land mass, 85 percent of the electric supply is nonrenewable and has contributed to the increasing amount of carbon emissions in the world. According to reports from the US Energy Information Administration, carbon dioxide production due to the generation of electricity was 1,925 million metric tons in 2015, roughly 37% of energy related carbon dioxide emissions in country. In fact, almost two thirds of electricity generation in the US came from coal and natural gas— and even worse, nuclear energy was used for the other 19 percent. [2][3]

How do these numbers fare against Costa Rica, a country with 50,000 square kilometers of land mass? You can reason that because of Costa Rica’s small area, it is much easier to power the entire country with renewable energy sources. However, we can also reason that the United States, a first world country considered a global superpower, has innumerable resources at its disposal in order to focus efforts on renewable energy sources. If supplying 100 percent seems too difficult, the US can do much better than 15 percent, surely.
