How to Convert Watts to Kilowatts Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Convert watts to kilowatts with this simple formula:

kilowatts = watts × 0.001

Converting a watt power measurement to a kilowatt measurement involves multiplying your power by the conversion ratio to find the result. A watt is equal to 0.001 kilowatts, so to convert simply multiply by 0.001.

For example:
5 W = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 kW

Watts and kilowatts are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators. A watt is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as W, for example 1 W. A kilowatt is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as kW, for example 1 kW.

A watt is equal to the rate of energy of one joule per second and is a standard unit of power measurement under the International System of Units (SI). You might also find our watts to amps calculator or our watts to kilowatt-hours calculator useful.
