## How to Convert Watt-Hours to Gigajoules

To convert a measurement in watt-hours to a measurement in gigajoules, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 3.6E-6 gigajoules/watt-hour.

Since one watt-hour is equal to 3.6E-6 gigajoules, you can use this simple formula to convert:

gigajoules = watt-hours × 3.6E-6

The energy in gigajoules is equal to the energy in watt-hours multiplied by 3.6E-6.

**For example,**here's how to convert 500,000 watt-hours to gigajoules using the formula above.

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

## What Is a Watt-Hour?

The watt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one watt of power over a one hour period.

Watt-hours are usually abbreviated as *Wh*, although the formally adopted expression is *W·h*. The abbreviation *W h* is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-hour can be written as 1 Wh, 1 W·h, or 1 W 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 Gigajoule?

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The gigajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for billions, or 10^{9}. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as *GJ*; for example, 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
