The electrical energy consumed by a 1,000 watt(1kilowatt) heater in an hour is one kilowatt hour (1KWH). A KWH is also known as a unit of electricity and as such is the basis of retail sales of electricity.
The measured amount of energy or water used during a given period. This is different from demand, which can be thought of as the greatest rate at which the energy or water is delivered at any one time during the billing period. In terms of electricity
the amount of any product or resource (e.g., material or energy) used in a given time by a given number of consumers.
The amount of electricity used by consumer.
Use of electrical energy, typically measured in kilowatt-hours
Amount of kilowatts and/or gallons of water used.
The electrical energy consumed by a 1,000 watt (1 kilowatt) appliance in an hour is one kilowatt-hour (kWh). A kilowatt-hour is also known as a â€˜unit of electricityâ€(tm) and is the unit in which retail sales of electricity are measured.
The conversion of turbulent kinetic energy into potential energy. This occurs when turbulence exists in a statically stable environment, because turbulence is moving cooler air parcels upward and warmer air parcels downward against the force of gravity. The rate of consumption is given by the buoyancy flux. Compare dissipation.
