The guaranteed power purchase contract with local utilities supports small renewable energy projects within the liberalised Swedish electricity market. Local distribution companies must purchase all electricity generated by projects of less than 1 500 kW within their service territories. Guaranteed power purchase contracts have been incorporated into Swedens green certificate scheme since 2003.
