How to Convert Btu Per Hour to Megawatts

To convert a btu per hour measurement to a megawatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio.

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 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.
5,000,000 Btu/h = (5,000,000 × 2.9307E-7) = 1.465355 MW

Btu per hour and megawatts are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

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 formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.


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 106. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW; for example, 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.
