Government policy on promoting Rural Self Sufficiency on Energy or Desa Mandiri Eneji (DME)intends to encourage the use of local resource in fulfilling community's need on domestic energy consumption. Jatropha curcas L. is one of the plant promoted in that policy for Lampung Province. This research intends to figure the economic efficiency of planting Jatropha curcas L. 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 the pilot project of the DEM program in Lampung Province. The study suggests that planting of Jatropha curcas L is barely profitable in the long run. However, compare to other commodities such as corn and cassava, the total profit of venturing Jatropha curcas was 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 advancement for equipment for processing and utilizing Jatropha,as well as institutional facility. Hence, domestically family has not utilized equipment being supplied by the government, and leading to the failure of of achieving DME's objective in the first place. Keywords: policy analysis matrix, profit
