When we think about energy innovation, it’s easy to focus on the giants like China, the US, or Germany. However, the tiny nation of Costa Rica provides a shining example of what’s possible.

With its lush landscapes and commitment to biodiversity, Costa Rica has a well-deserved reputation as an eco-friendly destination. But did you know that this Central American nation is also a leader in renewable energy?

In 2015, Costa Rica generated 99% of its electricity from renewable sources, including hydro, wind, geothermal, and solar power!!

What’s more impressive? They’ve maintained this feat for several years. That’s right — nearly 100% renewable energy, nearly all the time.

Costa Rica’s success is driven by several factors, including abundant rainfall for hydroelectric power, a small population, and a government committed to sustainability. However, their example shows that a renewable future is not only possible but already happening.

At Enzum, we’re taking inspiration from countries like Costa Rica. We believe in harnessing the power of nature, coupled with cutting-edge AI technology, to revolutionize energy consumption. Together, we can build a future that is not just sustainable but flourishes. Stay tuned with us on this exciting journey!
