TAKE-A-LOOK-Chile struggles with creaking energy grid
Chile's mining sector escaped relatively unscathed from a massive power blackout on Saturday night, but it will take years for the world's top copper producer to revamp its electrical grid and minimize risks.
A devastating earthquake early last year, a drought in hydropower-producing regions and years of under-investment have made the energy grid susceptible to more frequent glitches. Even so, severe power shortages are seen unlikely.
