How to Convert Kilocalories to Kilowatt-hours

To convert a kilocalorie measurement to a kilowatt-hour measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilocalorie is equal to 0.001162 kilowatt-hours, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilowatt-hours = kilocalories × 0.001162

The energy in kilowatt-hours is equal to the kilocalories multiplied by 0.001162.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilocalories to kilowatt-hours using the formula above.
5 kcal = (5 × 0.001162) = 0.005811 kWh

Kilocalories and kilowatt-hours are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Kilocalories

One kilocalorie, is equal to the heat needed to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water from 14.5 to 15.5 degrees Celsius.

Kilocalories can be abbreviated as kcal, for example 1 kilocalorie can be written as 1 kcal.

When being used to measure nutrition or metabolic processes, the large calorie is used, which is equal to one kilocalorie.

Kilowatt-hours

A kilowatt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one kilowatt, or 1,000 watts, of power over a one hour period. Kilowatt-hours are a measure of electrical work performed over a period of time, and are often used as a way of measuring energy usage by electric companies.

Kilowatt-hours can be abbreviated as kWh, for example 1 kilowatt-hour can be written as 1 kWh.
