How to Convert Quads to Megawatt-hours

To convert a quad measurement to a megawatt-hour measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio.

Since one quad is equal to 293,071,070.17222 megawatt-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:

megawatt-hours = quads × 293,071,070.17222

The energy in megawatt-hours is equal to the quads multiplied by 293,071,070.17222.

For example, here's how to convert 5 quads to megawatt-hours using the formula above.
5 quads = (5 × 293,071,070.17222) = 1,465,355,350.8611 MWh

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


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.


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]
