Changes in Indonesia's status as a nett importer of oil and the rise of international crude oil prices in 2005, led the newly appointed SBY government (in October 2004) to find solutions in fulfilling national energy needs. One of them is the development of jatropha oil as biodiesel. At that time, jatropha biodiesel would be developed through a program of energy self-sufficient village (ESV). One of the first, and at the same time, ESV pilot project was planned to be in the village of the District Tanjungharjo Ngaringan, Grobogan, Central Java. However, the existence of ESV in Tanjungharjo failed in 2009. The aim of this article is to explain the various factors which led to the failure of ESV in Tanjungharjo using Soft System Methodology (SSM).
