## How to Convert Kilowatt-Hours to Quads

To convert a measurement in kilowatt-hours to a measurement in quads, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 3.4121E-12 quads/kilowatt-hour.

Since one kilowatt-hour is equal to 3.4121E-12 quads, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in quads is equal to the energy in kilowatt-hours multiplied by 3.4121E-12.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000,000,000 kilowatt-hours to quads using the formula above.

## 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]

One therm is a measure of heat energy equal to one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) BTU, which are equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. Quads are usually used when talking about energy resources and consumption on a national or international scale.

The quad is a US customary unit of energy.
