This chapter explores the production of success through the replication of the Barefoot College’s solar programme worldwide: how knowledge, people and technology move through different orders of translation, including the attempts to give the women selected for training a new identity as solar engineers. This is illustrated via an account of the apparent failure of two Barefoot solar projects, in the process bringing to light the difficulties and labour involved in the generation of replicable development success.
