`Documentation of the Spreadsheet Energy System Model Generator <>`_:
**Warning! The installation has only been tested under Windows, using Python
3.7.6 (64 bit)! Python 3.8 is currently not supported.**
The Spreadsheet Energy System Model Generator was varried out within the
research project `R2Q "Resource Planing for Urban Districts" <>`_.
The project was funded by the BMBF within the framework of the Federal Ministry
of Education and Research's `RES:Z "Resource-Efficient Urban Districts" <>`_ funding
