1GW = 1000000000W

The power P in watt (W) is equal to the power P in gigawatt (GW) times 1000000000, that conversion formula:

P(W) = P(GW) × 1000000000

One Gigawatt is equal to 1000000000 Watt:

1GW = 1GW × 1000000000 = 1000000000W

1000 Watt is equal to 0 Gigawatt:

1000W = 1000W / 1000000000 = 0GW

P(W) = 5(GW) × 1000000000 = 5000000000W
