Unit GJ
Name gigajoule
Category Energy
Details Gigajoule (GJ) is a unit of energy used in the field of energy studies, engineering, and the sciences. It is a part of the International System of Units (SI) and is equivalent to one billion (10^9) joules. The joule (J) is the base unit of energy, representing the amount of work done when a force of one newton displaces an object by one meter in the direction of the force.

In the field of energy, gigajoules are typically used to quantify large amounts of energy, such as the energy content of fuels like natural gas or the energy consumed by industrial processes and large-scale power generation facilities. For example, a power plant's efficiency can be measured by how many gigajoules it produces for a given amount of input energy.

To put it in perspective, a single gigajoule is roughly equivalent to the energy released by the combustion of about 29.3 million BTU (British thermal units) of natural gas or about 278 kWh (kilowatt-hours) of electrical energy.
