## How to Convert Megawatt-hours to Quads

To convert a megawatt-hour measurement to a quad measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One megawatt-hour is equal to 3.4121E-9 quads, so use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in quads is equal to the 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.

Megawatt-hours and quads 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 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]}

## Quads

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.
