Million BTU and megawatt-hours are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Million BTU

One million BTU is a measure of heat energy equal to 1,000,000 BTU, which are equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit.

The million BTU is a US customary unit of energy. Million BTU can be abbreviated as *MMBTU*; for example, 1 million BTU can be written as 1 MMBTU.

## 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]}
