## How to convert gigawatts to kilowatts (GW to kW)

The formula for converting gigawatts to kilowatts is: kW = GW × 1000000. To calculate the gigawatt value in kilowatts first substitute the gigawatt value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 gigawatt in kilowatts we follow these steps:

kW = GW × 1000000

kW = 1 × 1000000

kW = 1000000

In other words, 1 gigawatt is equal to 1000000 kilowatts.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 gigawatts to kilowatts is:

- Understand the conversion formula: kW = GW × 1000000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for GW so the formula becomes: kW = 5 × 1000000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 1000000 = 5000000 kW

In summary, 5 gigawatts is equal to 5000000 kilowatts.

## Converting kilowatts to gigawatts

In order to convert the other way around i.e. kilowatts to gigawatts, you would use the following formula: GW = kW × 0.000001. To convert kilowatts to gigawatts first substitute the kilowatt value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 kilowatt in gigawatts we follow these steps:

GW = kW × 0.000001

GW = 1 × 0.000001

GW = 0.000001

Or in other words, 1 kilowatt is equal to 0.000001 gigawatts.
