How to Convert Megawatt-Hours to Quads

To convert a measurement in megawatt-hours to a measurement in quads, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 3.4121E-9 quads/megawatt-hour.

Since one megawatt-hour is equal to 3.4121E-9 quads, you can use this simple formula to convert:

quads = megawatt-hours × 3.4121E-9

The energy in quads is equal to the energy in megawatt-hours multiplied by 3.4121E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000,000 megawatt-hours to quads using the formula above.
quads = (500,000,000 MWh × 3.4121E-9) = 1.706071 quads

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

What Is a Megawatt-Hour?

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.[1]

What Is a Quad?

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.
