Watt-hours to Megawatt-hours Conversion
Enter the energy in watt-hours below to get the value converted to megawatt-hours.
How to Convert Watt-hours to Megawatt-hours
To convert a watt-hour measurement to a megawatt-hour measurement, divide the energy by the conversion ratio.
Since one megawatt-hour is equal to 1,000,000 watt-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The energy in megawatt-hours is equal to the watt-hours divided by 1,000,000.
Watt-hours and megawatt-hours are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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.
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.
