UK Pellet Council
The UK Pellet Council (UKPC) is a trade body, 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.
Who we are
The role of the UK Pellet Council is to manage the license 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 ISO 17225-2 standard for wood pellets (previously EN 14961-2).
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). A list of those companies operating in the UK are available on our website here.
The ENplus® certification covers the whole chain for wood pellets – from production to delivery to the final customer, therefore ensuring high quality as well as transparency.The ENplus® quality seal stands for low emissions and trouble-free heating with high energy value. The ENplus® seal means that someone buying a boiler from either a UK or European manufacturer can be confident they are buying the right quality of pellet for their boiler.
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
The RHI programme is designed to reward you for producing heat from renewable sources, and wood pellets are an easy way to taking advantage of this unique scheme. For further information on the scheme, boilers, installers and fuel supply, please see the links below:
