As each the human populace and dwelling requirements grow, so does the global strength demand. However, the energy area is likewise one in every of the largest environmental polluters. Therefore, alternatives are presently being sought geared toward lowering environmental effects, one of the capability gears for which worries using lifestyles cycle assessment. This study, therefore, specializes in the maximum normally used non-renewable (black coal, lignite, herbal fuel line and nuclear) and renewable sources (wind, hydro and photovoltaic) withinside the Czech Republic in phrases in their construction, operation, and decommissioning periods. Environmental effects are assessed thru using decided on effect classes with the aid of using manner of product environmental footprint methodology. The outcomes spotlight the capability environmental effects related to strength technology for every of the number one power sources. Black coal and lignite energy plant life had been discovered to make contributions maximum to the worldwide warming, useful resource use, power providers and respiration inorganics classes. On the alternative hand, the effect on water depletion and useful resource use, mineral and metals classes had been discovered to be most importantly stricken by the manufacturing of strength from photovoltaic energy plant life. Finally, it's far proposed that the outcomes be hired to layout eventualities for the destiny power mix.
