Abstract: Chile's Supreme Court last month unanimously rejected the $5 billion Castilla power project, ruling that the 2,100-megawatt plant could "harm the constitutional guarantee that one can live in an environment free of pollution." Meanwhile, industry leaders, particularly in the mining sector, have warned that the country's shaky electrical grid is hampering growth and investment. Does the rejection of the Castilla plant represent a major blow to Chile's energy future? How serious are the country's energy woes? Will solar, wind and other cleaner energy sources become more prevalent and help make up some of the shortfall or are they too economically infeasible on a larger scale?
