Abstract: Energy Development Corporation (EDC) has been exploring, developing, and harnessing clean and renewable energy resources in the Philippines for the last three decades. Being a pioneer in the country’s renewable energy industry, EDC continues to grow and adapt applicable technologies as they come out and reckoned useful to the company’s energy resource development and management objectives. One of the technologies that have seen increased use, especially in the Geosciences and Reservoir Engineering Group (GREG) of the company, is remote sensing. This paper details the rationale and perceived usefulness of remote sensing in geothermal energy exploration and management. The current uses, limitations, challenges, opportunities, and projected future uses of remote sensing data in EDC are also shared. It is foreseen that with the increased use of remote sensing data, EDC will continue to be at par with the current trends and best practices in the field of geothermal energy.
