Hydrogen energy could soon be available at your local petrol station.

The Waitomo petrol chain has unveiled plans to introduce Hiringa Energy refuelling stations around the country by 2025.

Chief executive Andrew Clennett told Mike Hosking the initial target will be on heavy vehicles.

"If you take four per cent of our vehicles in this country, the heavy transport, that's 25 per cent of our emission."

He says it will give customers another option.

"Think of like diesel and petrol. Those two technologies, they both add together to have the current transport mix that we have."
