Get SQLite output

Ivan explains how to make use of the tabular results in the SQLite output from E+. This is useful for extracting certain model information such as system capacity and cost for further analysis.


IDF Version Converter

Yi demonstrates the use of the new version converter function in jEPlus 1.5.


EP-Launch with JESS

Ivan demonstrates how to use the JESS Client to make EP-Launch run simulations remotely on the JESS server.


jEPlus+Net Intro

Dr Yi Zhang introduces the concept of jEPlus+Net, and how to use the job server and execution nodes on local network.


Use jEPlus+Net on EC2

Yi demonstrates running jEPlus+Net on Amazon EC2.
