## How to Convert Btu per Hour to Megawatts

To convert a measurement in btu per hour to a measurement in megawatts, multiply the power by the following conversion ratio: 2.9307E-7 megawatts/btu per hour.

Since one btu per hour is equal to 2.9307E-7 megawatts, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megawatts = btu per hour × 2.9307E-7

The power in megawatts is equal to the power in btu per hour multiplied by 2.9307E-7.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 btu per hour to megawatts using the formula above.
megawatts = (5,000,000 Btu/h × 2.9307E-7) = 1.465355 MW

## What Are Btu per Hour?

One BTU per hour is equal to one british thermal unit, or the energy needed to heat one pound of water 1 °F, for one hour.

The btu per hour is a US customary unit of power. Btu per hour can be abbreviated as Btu/h; for example, 1 btu per hour can be written as 1 Btu/h.

In the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units.

## What Is a Megawatt?

One megawatt is the power equal to 1,000,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000,000 joules per second.

The megawatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW; for example, 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.
