Geothermal, mini-hydro, wind and solar plants, among others, are being built as nations work to increase energy security and diversify their energy mixes.

Both the private and public sectors are building energy projects. Some projects are being built by state-owned companies in partnership with private firms.

Some projects are special purpose. Among them is a run-of-the-river hydro plant in Chile which would provide electricity to Los Andes Copper's Vizcachitas project. Both the mine and power plant are at the pre-feasibility study stage.
