Using the same inputs in here I re-implemented the band structure and projected density of state calculations using Quantum Espresso, then I used the same command:

import pyprocar
pyprocar.bandsplot(code='qe',mode='plain', elimit=[-18,-8])

to plot the bands using PyProcar, I get:

enter image description here

Which is clearly different from the original one here. It seems to me the bands have been shifted by 2E_F.

Is there any explanation?

I encountered the same problem and solved it just by setting the Fermi level to 0 eV. pyprocar.bandsplot(code = 'qe', mode='plain',repair = False,color="r",elimit=[-1,1],fermi = 0.000)

Hope that helps!
