United Rentals to Add Hydrogen Power Generators to Fleet

United Rentals, Inc., an equipment rental company,  announced it is adding several hydrogen power generators to its North American rental fleet in the coming months.

The company's customers will have a zero-emissions power solution to charge EVs and tools, and other equipment, advancing worksite electrification strategies.

United Rentals acquired the generators from Generac, a distribution partner for EODev. The generators join emissions-free aerial lifts, trucks, vans, compact excavators, e-dumpsters, battery systems and more already in the United Rentals portfolio of environmentally friendly rental equipment. United Rentals expects to deploy the generators during the fourth quarter of 2022 and in 2023.

“By providing a zero-emissions power solution, United Rentals continues to demonstrate leadership in helping worksites expand electrification in construction and industrial rental sectors,” said David Scott, Senior Vice President of Specialty Operations, United Rentals, in a statement. “We can assist companies as they work to close the sustainability loop by providing the power they need without generating harmful emissions to charge electric vehicles and equipment, and more.”

United Rentals has set a goal of reducing the GHG emissions intensity of its business by 35% by 2030 from 2018.
