Abstract:Managing natural resources is facing dilemmas in most of energy sources producer countries. The conflict between political interest and socio-economic has been the major problem that caused the dilemmas, option to sell (export) rather than to use for the domestic fulfillment seems to be the most choice that been undertaken by the producer states. Therefore, energy policy is considered the best instrument in energy management. However, effective implementation of the policy becomes the critical point beyond the policy on paper. The Province of Jambi (Indonesia) is taken as a case study, with aims to analyze the implementation process of the National Energy Policy (KEN) in the province. The Contextual Interaction Theory (CIT) is used as the theoretical framework to explain the interaction among the actors based on their characteristics and the contextual factors that influence the implementation process. The primary data of this research were derived from semi-structured interviews and a working group with the key informants of energy authorities: the policy makers and the national utility company. The secondary data supporting the primary data were derived from preliminary study of energy in Jambi Province, policy documents, energy statistical data, and sources from media. The qualitative methods with the case study approach applied to explain condition in Jambi Province by comparing the impact of the policy in the urban and rural areas. This study has found that the electrification ratio was increased significantly (82%) in 2016, proving that the KEN (policy) influenced the electricity services supply in the province. However, the delay of several projects of power generation has been identified as the barrier in the KEN implementation, which has influenced the secure supply of electricity services in the province. These factors have been discovered in the analysis of the internal and external contexts that influence the implementation of the KEN policy. Moreover, recommendations and evaluations of the study have been discussed to confirm the contribution of the research to the existing body of knowledge with suggestions for advanced research.
