Costa Rica intends to lead the transition to sustainable mobility in Latin America and pledged to reduce CO2 emissions to 25% by 2030. Electric vehicles are key and the country intends to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles in the next five years. There are currently more than two million vehicles in Costa Rica for a population of five million. The transportation sector accounts for two-thirds of Costa Rica’s oil consumption and 34% of the country’s total carbon dioxide emissions. If we take into account that 99% of Costa Rica’s electricity comes from renewable sources, electrification of the vehicle fleet is a clear path for reducing emissions.

About our chargers in Costa Rica
As part of the decarbonization plan in Costa Rica, Transport and Sustainable Mobility are the pillar for the transformation of the fleet of light vehicles to zero emissions, fed by renewable energy, not of fossil origin. CNFL installed the first MC QCA50 equipment at the Substation of the Comisión Nacional de Fuerza y Luz (CNFL) in Paso Ancho, near Route 39, also known as the ring road, one of the main transit arteries of the capital city of San José, Costa Rica.
Subsequently, the second Rapid Vehicle Loading Center was installed in the Federated College of Engineers and Architects of Costa Rica (CFIA) in a public-private partnership, which is the body that regulates the work of the various professionals of Architecture and Engineering in the Republic of Costa Rica
A third charger is to be installed in Limonal-Guanacaste, by ICE in alliance with CNFL, in the north of the inter-American highway, in a strategic point for the displacement of end to end of Costa Rica, which allows to extend the security and to minimize the anxiety of recharging of the electric vehicles that move to one of the most relevant tourist zones of the country.
