How to Convert Megawatts to Btu Per Hour

To convert a megawatt measurement to a btu per hour measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio.

Since one megawatt is equal to 3,412,142.450123 btu per hour, you can use this simple formula to convert:

btu per hour = megawatts × 3,412,142.450123

The power in btu per hour is equal to the megawatts multiplied by 3,412,142.450123.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megawatts to btu per hour using the formula above.
5 MW = (5 × 3,412,142.450123) = 17,060,712.250615 Btu/h

Megawatts and btu per hour are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


One megawatt is the power equal to 1,000,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000,000 joules per second.

The megawatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW; for example, 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.

Btu Per Hour

One BTU per hour is equal to one british thermal unit, or the energy needed to heat one pound of water 1 °F, for one hour.

The btu per hour is a US customary unit of power. Btu per hour can be abbreviated as Btu/h; for example, 1 btu per hour can be written as 1 Btu/h.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.
