Abstract

Government policy on promoting rural self sufficiency on energy or Desa Mandiri Energi (DEM) intends to encourage the use of local resources in fulfilling community's needs on domestic energy consumption. Jathropa curcas L is one of the plant promoted in the policy in Lampung Province. This research intends to figure out the economic efficiency of planting Jathropa curcas K for farmers and to identify constraints of undertaking such initiatives. This research employs Policy Analysis Matrix and the study site is in Desa Babatan, Kecamatan Tanjungan, Kabupaten Lampung Selatan. This village is chosen as a pilot of DEM program in Lampung Province. The study suggests that planting Jatropha curcas L is barely profitable in the long run. However, compare to other commodities such as corn or cassava, the total profit for venturing Jatropha is too inferior, resulting farmers' reluctant to expand this commodity. The DME program itself was suffered from lack of supporting factors such as local processing industries, integrity of the market, technology enhancement for processing and utilizing jatropha as well as institutional facility. Hence, domestically farmers has not utilized equipment being supplied by the government and leading to the failure of achieving DME's objective in the first place.
