One watt is the power equal to the rate of energy of one joule per second in an electrical circuit. One watt is also equal to the power produced in a circuit with a voltage potential of one volt with a current of one amp.
A gigawatt is a massive amount of energy equalling 1000 megawatts. That is enough to power a medium-sized city. To generate that much power in a day would take over 3 million solar panels.
A unit of electrical power equal to one billion watts. These units are most commonly used in referring to the total output of a type of energy production like solar or nuclear and can also be used to measure the total energy capacity of a state or country.
How to convert watts to gigawatts
1W = 10-9GW = 1/1000000000 GW
1GW = 109W = 1000000000 W
Watts to gigawatts conversion formula
The power in gigawatts P(GW) is equal to the power in watts P(W) divided by 109:
P(GW) = P(W) / 109
Convert 5W to gigawatts:
P(GW) = 5W / 109 = 5×10-9GW
