Modelling renewable supply chain for electricity generation with forest, fossil, and wood-waste fuels

Publication year: 2011brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 1 September 2011brTeijo, PalanderbrIn this paper, a multiple objective model to large-scale and long-term industrial energy supply chain scheduling problems is considered. The problems include the allocation of a number of fossil, peat, and wood-waste fuel procurement chains to an energy plant during different periods. This decision environment is further complicated by sequence-dependent procurement chains for forest fuels. A dynamic linear programming model can be efficiently used for modelling energy flows in fuel procurement planning. However, due to the complex nature of the problem, the resulting model cannot be directly used to solve the combined heat and electricity production problem in a manner…br Highlights: ► The energy policy decisions are made using comprehensive techno-economic analysis. ► Peat tax, feed-in tariff and energy efficiency increases renewable energy production. ► The potential of peat procurement deviates from the current assumptions of managers. ► The dynamic MOLP model could easily be adapted to a changing decision environment.
