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.
