Ger Plug-In

The Ger Plug-In is a permanent house that provides the ger with everything it does not have: a toilet; a shower; an electric heating system and increased thermal insulation.

To make it more affordable to residents, the Ger Plug-In is incremental. It can be built in two stages to reduce initial investment costs.

The first prototype was built in 2017 and was proven to perform environmentally 23% better than required by Mongolian building regulations. Over the winter the residents consume 93% less coal.

If each of the 163,000 ger households was replaced by a Ger Plug-In this would result in an estimated saving of 576,042 tons of coal per year.
