In this work, a life cycle analysis is accomplished for flat plate solar collectors. The purpose of this investigation is to predict the energy consumption during the manufacturing processes that results in carbon dioxide emissions. Energy consumption and system efficiency enhancement will be studied and predicted. CES EduPack software is used to perform the analysis of the currently commercial system, and the suggested changes are implemented to increase the efficiency and make the comparison. Even though cost analysis is done, the priority of selection is given to the most energy conserving and environmentally friendly alternative. However, if the compared alternatives result in the same energy consumption and CO2 emissions, the cost analysis would be a better approach. It can be stated that flat plate solar collectors are sustainable and renewable energy systems that do not produce CO2 emissions during their active usage, but the manufacturing processes they undergo during the design contribute to the greenhouse gasses emission.
