## How to Convert Kilocalories per Hour to Megawatts

To convert a measurement in kilocalories per hour to a measurement in megawatts, multiply the power by the following conversion ratio: 1.1622E-6 megawatts/kilocalorie per hour.

Since one kilocalorie per hour is equal to 1.1622E-6 megawatts, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megawatts = kilocalories per hour × 1.1622E-6

The power in megawatts is equal to the power in kilocalories per hour multiplied by 1.1622E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 kilocalories per hour to megawatts using the formula above.
megawatts = (500,000 kcal/h × 1.1622E-6) = 0.581111 MW

## What Are Kilocalories per Hour?

One kilocalorie per hour is equal to one kilocalorie, or 1,000 times the energy needed to heat one gram of water 1 °C, for one hour.

Kilocalories per hour can be abbreviated as kcal/h; for example, 1 kilocalorie per hour can be written as 1 kcal/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.
