Public Sector

We are working with economic development agencies, communities, and local government across New Zealand.

Hydrogen fuel cell technology represents a value for money alternative to diesel and high emission reduction for dollar spent for high utilisation services.

Hydrogen is an opportunity for district and regional councils to create more environmentally sustainable, resilient, and energy independent communities.

Our approach is to work with regions, leveraging our skills and experience to provide hydrogen solutions that meet local needs. 

Our model is to create the opportunity for local collaboration and ownership.  

By collaborating we can secure better outcomes for local communities than standalone projects.  

Who are we currently working with?

The public sector has opportunity to transition multiple energy forms including transport, heat and power, and to utilise waste water and biogas to create new sustainable hydrogen based ecosystems. 

Hydrogen fuel cell buses, street sweepers, rubbish collection trucks and maintenance 

vehicles are already in operation in cities overseas.  

Hiringa is working with district, regional and central government to develop projects for:

  • fleet vehicles

  • regional bus fleets

  • contractor fleets including waste trucks, street sweepers, road maintenance

  • stationary heat and power

Trains and ferries are also good applications for hydrogen and Hiringa is working with international and local suppliers to provide solutions for New Zealand.  


Proven operational performance


  • Fuel cell buses are quiet, have zero emissions, and can offer high torque and power suitable for all duties and transit routes (gradeability, highway speeds, and long range).

Proven technology

  • Fuel cell bus fleets have been in operation for 10 million kilometers in service with more than 10 years on the road under different operating conditions.

Operational performance

  • The latest generation of fuel cell electric buses can provide a direct replacement for diesel buses with no compromise to service and operation. Refuelling is quick and simple.

Quiet and efficient

  • Fuel cell buses are quiet and two to three times more efficient than their diesel equivalents

Environmentally friendly

  • Zero emission, zero pollution 

We work with you

The journey to zero emissions is no solo endeavour.

It needs to be one of business, local and national governments, and communities all working together.

So let's talk about how, together, we can make hydrogen work for you.
