Energy curtailment is an effort to reduce the amount of energy used when extra stress is put onto energy systems, such as during periods of high heat or humidity. The med center uses energy curtailment days throughout the summer to ensure other systems can function.
As temperatures drop outside, people can take some easy steps to conserve energy inside.
Using hot water for heating is driving energy efficiencies and savings.
This week is another hot one, and the medical center has been and will continue to be in and out of curtailment throughout the summer.
Reducing energy use is an important part of the medical center’s effort to achieve net zero building emissions by 2030.
UNMC and the Nebraska Medical Center will be in energy curtailment through Friday.
Winter storms and extreme temperatures put a strain on energy infrastructure across the country.
