Description:

In 2009, the Swedish government introduced an investment support scheme for solar heating for all applicants, from private individuals to companies. The investment support corresponded to SEK 2.50/kWh/year of the production of the solar panels, calculated in terms of heat exchange. The investment subsidy was limited to a maximum of SEK 7 500 per apartment building, and a maximum of SEK 3 million per project. Funding was disbursed through provincial governments. Solar thermal collectors had to meet certain quality standards to qualify for the support, and had to be installed by a professional.  The scheme ended in 2011. A total of SEK 77.4 million was disbursed.

The program was evaluated in 2012. The overall assessment was that the it was cost-effieicent. http://www.boverket.se/Global/Webbokhandel/Dokument/2012/Utvardering-av-solvarmebidraget-och-solvarmestodet.pdf
