Stand-alone system of power production is very important for every industrial activity. Green energy initiative has various options of Power projects which includes Synthetic natural gas-Bio mass, geo-thermal, tidal, hydro, hydrogen, nuclear and Solar. Every power producing project as product has different requirement of the design in nature and its process application. The world growing urban population in the developed economies where there is a culture to consume more therefore, urban and town planners have to design inclinators as well for quick disposal of the burnable waste which has became a life line for the urban areas sustainability. Similarly, the Hydrogen power projects have a big rivalry in the alternative fuel area with the Synthetic Natural gas. Development of renewable fuel infrastructures and systems is very complex. It is up to the capacity of the design to support the main grid in the peak load situation Therefore; comprehensive analyses are required to ensure the implementation and accomplishment of the desired goals, with few unintended consequences. In this paper a comparative Life Cycle Assessment based results are presented as a Sustainable design of new energy product in the wake of current state of the global energy needs ; given the fact that sluggish economy where millions of hybrid cars are expected to be on the road which will put tremendous pressure on our current power supply system. Therefore stand alone energy systems are needed to fulfill rapid growth in peak loads situations or even if possible for back up support system of the current grid capacity. As after the lake Erie`s incident in north America un foreseen is possible even reliability makes us over confident. Much of the related work on impact assessment and lifecycle energy analysis has been presented by Ali-Qureshi in ASME`s (MSEC-2008) and IASTED`s (EME-2009). In this paper comparative analysis on the basis of LHV and HHV are presented.
