How to Convert Megawatt-hours to Kilocalories

To convert a megawatt-hour measurement to a kilocalorie measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One megawatt-hour is equal to 860,420.650096 kilocalories, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilocalories = megawatt-hours × 860,420.650096

The energy in kilocalories is equal to the megawatt-hours multiplied by 860,420.650096.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megawatt-hours to kilocalories using the formula above.
5 MWh = (5 × 860,420.650096) = 4,302,103.250478 kcal

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

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 can be abbreviated as MWh, for example 1 megawatt-hour can be written as 1 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.
