I am honored to have received the Honorable Award of the Grand Renewable Energy 2022 International Conference in the area "Policy and Integrated Concept" for the oral presentation "A method for evaluating the distance to urban areas for the solar energy potential." This study described a method for understanding how is the solar PV energy potential distributed with respect to urban areas at the global scale. This way I found that current global electricity demand can be covered with solar resources of high-quality (annual capacity factor > 24%) within 20km away from urban areas. This method allows to quantify the role of solar resources in the proximity of urban areas, as a new factor in the assessment of global energy resources. This award is a nice motivation for developing research towards a decarbonized society.
