Perspectives towards future activities for EGS project management tools
The exploitation of high enthalpy geothermal systems through the use of EGS technologies is one of the most promising options for providing sustainable and environmentally acceptable electricity generation and direct use applications. 
For over 35 years, scientific, technical and organizational knowledge has been obtained from a succession of long-lived EGS research projects in different countries.  It is extremely important - but also a big challenge – that new project teams have access to all the relevant knowledge and experience acquired to date to ensure as successful and smooth a project start as possible.  

Recognition of this prospect led the GIA to create Annex III in 1997 to investigate various aspects of EGS. One very important component of the Annex III studies is the acquisition and processing of data, which is currently being addressed in Subtask C. Under this Subtask the so-called Project Management Decision Assistant (PMDA) tool was developed.

The PMDA assembles an overview of data, data analyses and experiences (as lists of reports and publications, including many abstracts) obtained from the major EGS projects worldwide since the early 1970s, and provides an example index of suppliers of services and equipment that can be developed in detail for the local part of the world of interest.

The presentation provides an outlook and perspectives towards future activities for EGS project management tools.
