Hi Dr. Ben,

Could you please inform me where I can change the argument list since I
can't find the argument list in evolve.py.

I add parser.add_argument("--re-limit, .....) in evolve.py but it didn't

The simulated generators are either classified as fossil or renewable
(there is no nuclear generator model as yet), so you can ensure a
minimum level of RE using a fossil limit of 1-x (ie. a fossil limit of
20% is a minimum of 80% RE).

If you want to impose a maximum level of RE, you'll need to write a
new penalty function in evolve.py and add it to the penaltyfns list
also in evolve.py.

Cheers, Ben
