Christopher Harto has been an Energy and Environmental Analyst at Argonne National Laboratory since 2010. His work focuses on quantifying the environmental performance of energy technologies. Much of his recent work is related to the energy-water nexus. Recent projects have included estimating the life cycle water footprint of geothermal energy and carbon capture and sequestration, life cycle assessment of produced water treatment and disposal systems, and quantifying the risk to electricity generation from severe drought in the Western US. Christopher received a M.S. in Sustainability from Arizona State University where he was an Arizona Science Foundation Fellow, and a B.S in Chemical Engineering from Ohio State University.
