This article analyses how a latecomer firm facing adverse economic and policy conditions might still be able to build up enough technological capabilities to catch up with global competitors in renewable energy systems. Drawing on catch up theory and evolutionary economics, we conduct an in-depth case study of an unusually successful firm from Argentina over a 40 year period. The research indicates that the gradual and coherent formation of ‘contrarian’ technological capabilities eventually pays off in the long term.
