The UK Pellet Council (UKPC) is a trade body, hosted by the Renewable Energy Association (REA), which represents the interests of the UK wood pellet sector. Its members are manufacturers and distributors of wood pellets for heating. These issues include standardisation and certification of pellet quality, safety, and security of supply, education and training.
The role of the UK Pellet Council is to manage the licence for ENplus in the UK. The ENplus quality certification is a major step towards establishing pellets as a widely used energy commodity. For the first time numerous national standards and certifications are replaced by one uniform system based on the EN 14961-2 standard for wood pellets.
There are a selection of producers and traders of ENplus grade pellets in the UK and the market is continuing to grow with the implementation of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
