In 2015, he initiated and organized the "Energy Internet" Xiangshan Science Conference, which was recognized as a milestone in the development of energy Internet technology in China. He proposed the Unified Energy Circuit Theory and led his research team to develop the first Integrated Energy Management system (IEMs). In 2017, the IEEE Conference on Energy Internet and Energy System Integration was founded under his influence, which has become the flagship conference in the field of energy Internet. In 2020, he published the monograph "Energy Internet" that has been reprinted nine times in the past half a year. The book has sold more than 10000 copies sold, leaving a significant academic and industrial impact. In June 2020, he promoted the establishment of the Energy Internet Coordination Committee (EICC) and served as the first chairman, which is the first committee initiated by Chinese scholars in the history of IEEE PES. It is widely acknowledged that Professor Sun Hongbin has played an important role in promoting the development of energy Internet.


It is reported that the Energy Internet Pioneer Award is firstly set up by IEEE EI².
