How to Convert Gigajoules to Watt-Hours

To convert a measurement in gigajoules to a measurement in watt-hours, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 277,777.777778 watt-hours/gigajoule.

Since one gigajoule is equal to 277,777.777778 watt-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:

watt-hours = gigajoules × 277,777.777778

The energy in watt-hours is equal to the energy in gigajoules multiplied by 277,777.777778.

For example, here's how to convert 5 gigajoules to watt-hours using the formula above.
watt-hours = (5 GJ × 277,777.777778) = 1,388,888.888889 Wh

How Many Watt-Hours Are in a Gigajoule?

What Is a Gigajoule?

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The gigajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for billions, or 109. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ; for example, 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.

What Is a Watt-Hour?

The watt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one watt of power over a one hour period.

Watt-hours are usually abbreviated as Wh, although the formally adopted expression is W·h. The abbreviation W h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-hour can be written as 1 Wh, 1 W·h, or 1 W h.

In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.[1]
