Throughout its seven decades of existence, Costa Rica’s state-owned electric utility—the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE)—has had a mandate to use renewable energy. That gives the country a deep well of experience from which to draw as it tries to reduce its carbon footprint even further. In an interview with the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA), the public utility’s top executive talked about the role the company will play in the country’s ambitious Decarbonization Plan. Hint: It’s not just about going green, but about going digital too.
