Let be a simple graph. The incidence energy ( for short) of is defined as the sum of the singular values of the incidence matrix. In this paper, a new upper bound for of graphs in terms of the maximum degree is given. Meanwhile, bounds for of the line graph of a semiregular graph and the paraline graph of a regular graph are obtained.
