Lokaliseringsanalys av bioenergianläggningar i Sverige, en GIS-baserad studie

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper was to study optimal localization for bioenergy facilities in Sweden and identify the locational characteristics. This was done through a multi-criteria analysis with a GIS approach. A number of influential criteria was identified through localization theory and previous research in the discussed area and then weighted through an Analytical Hierarchy Process. The theoretical framework consists of localization theory developed by mainly Alfred Weber and Paul Krugman, where industrial localization is the main focus. The result showed three hot-spots in the areas around Piteå, Sundsvall and Småland/Östergötland where it is preferable to locate a bioenergy facility. Two locations were given the highest possible potential: Växjö and Norrköping.
