  1. 1. Pilot community: ADZANETA DEL MAESTRAT SPAIN Population: 1.462 (2007) inhabitants Area: 71,27 km2 Address: Plaza Mayor nº 2 Zip code: 12132 (Castellón) Phone: +34 964 370018 Fax: +34 964 370298 Mayor Joaquim Escrig Escrig e-mail: info@atzenetadelmaestrat.es website: http://www.atzenetadelmaestrat.es/es Adzaneta (Atzeneta in Valencian language) is a City of the Spanish Region of Valencia, situated 45 km from the city of Castellón. Its territory covers an area of 71,27 km2. Its position 401m above sea level makes Adzaneta the “main entry” to Penyagolosa Massif. The city centre is located along a large corridor which is an important landline. In Adzaneta several archeologic sites dating back the bronze era have been found as well as those belonging to the Zanata’s Berber tribe coming from the north of Africa: the city name itself (Adzaneta) originated from the word Zanata. Adzaneta was officially chartered with the Carta de la Puebla (People’s chart) in 1272 given by the local noble Guillem d'Anglesola. Adzaneta experienced a great development along the XIV, the XV and most of all during the XIII century. Agriculture, livestock and forest exploitation represent the basis of Adzaneta’s economy and also a potential source for renewable energy production. The future economic plans for the City focus on the implementation of projects aimed at exploiting renewable sources. The population counts 1462 inhabitants mainly gathered in the city centre. Even though, there are several country houses inhabited all around Adzaneta’s municipal area. The region’s rich natural and cultural diversity makes it an attractive place for sustainable tourism. Renewable Energy Sources Now: Sun (photovoltaic farms are available); organic residues. Future: Projects aimed at converting organic residues in energy; photovoltaic farms with the participation of local cooperatives. Rational Use of Energy
