# Kilocalories to Megawatt-hours Conversion

Enter the energy in kilocalories below to get the value converted to megawatt-hours.

Results in Megawatt-hours: 1 kcal = 1.1622E-6 MWh
Hint: use a scientific notation calculator to convert E notation to decimal

## How to Convert Kilocalories to Megawatt-hours

To convert a kilocalorie measurement to a megawatt-hour measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio.

Since one kilocalorie is equal to 1.1622E-6 megawatt-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megawatt-hours = kilocalories × 1.1622E-6

The energy in megawatt-hours is equal to the kilocalories multiplied by 1.1622E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 kilocalories to megawatt-hours using the formula above.
500,000 kcal = (500,000 × 1.1622E-6) = 0.581111 MWh

## 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.

## Megawatt-hours

A megawatt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one megawatt, or 1,000,000 watts, of power over a one hour period. Megawatt-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.

Megawatt-hours are usually abbreviated as MWh, although the formally adopted expression is MW·h. The abbreviation MW h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 megawatt-hour can be written as 1 MWh, 1 MW·h, or 1 MW 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.
