Technologies such as electrification, informatization, and intelligence will reshape the energy form of cities in the future. Energy will become a key link in sustainable development and be integrated into sustainable urban development. Starting from the key elements of the energy system for sustainable urban development, considering urban resource endowment and energy demand, combining future urban forms and technological development, from the perspective of P2C (production to consumption) & C2P (consumption to production), a smart energy network ecosystem created by global partners and stakeholders is proposed. The features of the proposed ecosystem are: (1) the wisdom of various participants, the consideration of the renewable energy resources available in cities and towns, and the waste heat and wastewater available in urban are integrated; (2) the integrated integration of smart grid and energy storage applications; considering the integration of big data, artificial intelligence and other technical means are considered; (3) focusing on the energy supply and consumption needs of the prosumers, we will jointly customize the smart energy network ecosystem, realize the complementary use of multiple clean energy sources and the coordinated response of the source, network, and storage to provide fair and diversified comprehensive energy services for urban users. This paper demonstrates the ecosystem's modelling ideas, principles, methods and logical framework. Based on the case of the Smart Otaniemi project in Espoo, Finland, it analyses the implementation plan of the smart energy network ecosystem to provide support for the sustainable development of towns.
