A class of strongly coupled parabolic systems, modeling the energy transport
of electrons in semiconductors, is analyzed. The variables are the electron density and
the thermal energy. First, some Lyapunov functionals are derived, which yields the weak
sequential stability for smooth solutions in the sense of Feireisl, using weak compactness
results. Second, by the H−1 method, the uniqueness of bounded weak solutions is proved.
