How to convert kilowatt hours to megawatt hours (kWh to MWh)
The formula for converting kilowatt hours to megawatt hours is: MWh = kWh × 0.001. To calculate the kilowatt hour value in megawatt hours first substitute the kilowatt hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilowatt hour in megawatt hours we follow these steps:
MWh = kWh × 0.001
MWh = 1 × 0.001
MWh = 0.001
In other words, 1 kilowatt hour is equal to 0.001 megawatt hours.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 8 kilowatt hours to megawatt hours is:
- Understand the conversion formula: MWh = kWh × 0.001
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 8 for kWh so the formula becomes: MWh = 8 × 0.001
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 8 × 0.001 = 0.008 MWh
In summary, 8 kilowatt hours is equal to 0.008 megawatt hours.
Converting megawatt hours to kilowatt hours
In order to convert the other way around i.e. megawatt hours to kilowatt hours, you would use the following formula: kWh = MWh × 1000. To convert megawatt hours to kilowatt hours first substitute the megawatt hour value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 megawatt hour in kilowatt hours we follow these steps:
kWh = MWh × 1000
kWh = 1 × 1000
kWh = 1000
Or in other words, 1 megawatt hour is equal to 1000 kilowatt hours.
