The natural changes in moisture content of energy wood stockpiles can now be forecasted by models, which are using weather statistics, material characteristics, time and location as an input. Models help energy wood supply companies to manage their material flow and improve the efficiency of their deliveries. Models are done for logging residues and for delimbed energy wood. Some companies have implemented models already and experiences are very positive.
