The seasonal temperature changes under Nordic climate conditions cause a pronounced variation of the fuel demand, regarding both quantity and quality, in forest bioenergy plants. Peak times occur during winter when limited road accessibility and available fleet capacities may restrict the supply of forest fuel. The present study aims to address these challenges by developing a precision supply scenario for forest fuel to bioenergy plants, meaning supplying the right material at the right time. The...
