Welcome to CUE2019-Applied Energy Symposium 2019: Low carbon cities and urban energy systems.

Cities are rapidly getting on top of the agendas of various initiatives worldwide aimed at decreasing the cost and carbon footprint of energy products, services and activities. The demands and pressure on energy infrastructure and resources oblige city infrastructure and consumers to adapt intelligently to ensure efficient, affordable and sustainable solutions.

Developing intelligent energy solutions for resilient urban systems is a global and complex challenge which involves interdisciplinary fields. With this as theme of the conference, CUE2019 aims to provide a premier international forum for all stakeholders including academia, industry and policy decision makers to present and share latest findings in all aspects across this domain, discussing how smart technologies and services can integrate the production and use of energy to support a more sustainable and resilient urban system.

CUE2019 is organized by the international journal, Applied Energy and Applied Energy Innovation Institute (AEii), hosted by Xiamen University, and co-organized by National University of Singapore, Mälardalen University Sweden, The Institute of Urban Environment -Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Imperial College London, and supported by Chinese Society of Engineering Thermophysics, China Association for Science and Technology HOME Program and Fujian Association for Science and Technology. The event consists of two-day symposium and one-day lab/site tours for sharing the most recent progress of RD&Ds in urban energy systems.

CUE2019 will be held on October 16-18, 2019 in the city of Xiamen, China. As one of the first 8 pilot low-carbon cities in China, Xiamen has taken the lead in building a low-carbon economy and exploring the sustainable urban development model. The conference will include keynotes and invited speeches, plenary sessions, oral presentations and poster sessions. Selected best papers from the conference will be considered for publication in a special issue of Applied Energy ( (IF=7.900).
