How to Convert Kilocalories to Kilowatt-Hours

To convert a measurement in kilocalories to a measurement in kilowatt-hours, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 0.001162 kilowatt-hours/kilocalorie.

Since one kilocalorie is equal to 0.001162 kilowatt-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilowatt-hours = kilocalories × 0.001162

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

For example, here's how to convert 500 kilocalories to kilowatt-hours using the formula above.
kilowatt-hours = (500 kcal × 0.001162) = 0.581111 kWh

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

What Is a Kilocalorie?

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.

What Is a Kilowatt-Hour?

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 are usually abbreviated as kWh, although the formally adopted expression is kW·h. The abbreviation kW h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 kilowatt-hour can be written as 1 kWh, 1 kW·h, or 1 kW 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]
