Abstract

•Location–allocation models are frequently used to locate bio-energy facilities.•Current approaches do not account for supply competition between potential sites.•We propose an extension to the p-median model that evaluates supply catchments.•It is demonstrated using a case study to optimally locate AD facilities.•Both resource supply and competition are critical when locating bio-energy facilities.
