The European Pellet Council (EPC) is an umbrella organisation representing the interests of the European wood pellet sector. Its members are national pellet associations or related organisations from 16 countries. The European Pellet Council is a platform for the pellet sector to discuss the issues that need to be managed in the transition from a niche product to a major energy commodity. These issues include standardisation and certification of pellet quality, safety, security of supply, education and training, and the quality of pellet using devices.
EPC represents the interests of the sector in Brussels and communicates the contributions the European pellet sector can make to increase the use of renewable energy in Europe.
EPC also coordinates the ENplus quality certification and constantly adopts this system according to market needs (e.g. certification of industrial pellets, sustainability aspects). For this purpose a dedicated European project (PellCert – see www.pellcert.eu) has been established. PellCert is funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe programme.

European Pellet Council is co-organizing together with the European Biomass Association (AEBIOM) the 4th AEBIOM Bioenergy Conference on the 17-19 June 2013.
