This paper explores some of the local drivers and barriers for an implementation program of a hybrid renewable energy system (HRESRWS) in the Mesuji – Tulang Bawang district (MTB) of the Lampung province on Sumatera. In this study, secondary data obtained from field surveys from the village of Tanjung Menang in the MTS have been analysed using quantitative and qualitative methods to assess the drivers and barriers for the program. Quantitative data are obtained from the survey questionnaires using Gutman and Likert scales. The results of the surveys indicate that although only 15 % of the respondents currently use renewable energy via an existing renewable energy system (PKM) installed in Tanjung Menang, 72% of the respondents have a good technical understanding of the PKM and 79% of the respondents would have sufficient qualification to monitor and report on the HRESRWS. Overall 81 % of the respondents indicate that they believe that their community would support the implementation program. It is concluded from preliminary results that there are sufficient drivers from within the community for the implementation program to be successful.
