The Time Zone Converter converts times instantly as you type. Convert between major world cities, countries and timezones in both directions. UTC does not change with a change of seasons, but local time or civil time may change if a time zone jurisdiction observes daylight saving time (summer time). Macbook pro cannot restart. For example, local time on the east coast of the United States is five hours behind UTC during winter, but four hours behind while daylight saving is observed there.
Summer class sessions begin May 13 and June 24, 2020. Some students may be eligible to receive financial aid for summer school. Students will be notified of summer aid eligibility approximately two weeks after registration. Time used there is 2 hours and 12 minutes ahead of physical time in the summer, making for the greatest discrepancy in the UTC time zone. The easternmost settlement where UTC with DST is applied is Lowestoft in Suffolk, East Anglia, UK (at just 1°45' E). Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). British Summer Time (BST). Western European Summer Time (WEST). Central European Summer Time (CEST). Eastern European Summer Time (EEST). London. Paris. Berlin. Athens. Warsaw. Kiev. Belarus. Moscow. Madrid. Stockholm. Amsterdam. Istanbul.
The differences between the individual time zones are always given in relation to 'Universal Time Coordinated' (UTC), i.e. the time that exists on the zero meridian (zero degrees of longitude). The time zone UTC +1 is valid for Central European Time. In summer, we set the clocks forward one hour, thus reaching UTC +2.

Countries in Central European SummertimeThe CEST applies to the following countries:

The area of the countries participating in Central European Summer Time today is by far the largest in Europe. There is only the Western European Time Zone, which is considerably smaller in area, and the Eastern European Time Zone.
Controversial energy savingsThe fact that the time changeover saves energy was already one of the main arguments at the beginning of the last century and was repeatedly cited by numerous states as a justification. In fact, the effect is rather marginal, because what no longer needs to be illuminated in the evening is left in the dark longer in the morning. Instead, savings of 0.2 percent in France or even a 1 percent increase in parts of the USA have been confirmed. Today, it is assumed that many countries joined the time changeovers of their neighboring countries merely for political and economic reasons in order to create a more uniform internal market.
Summer time in the AntarcticThere is a special feature in Antarctica that is hardly known in our regions: In the Troll region, GMT, i.e. Greenwich Mean Time in the time zone UTC+0, is valid in winter, whereas in summer the official time is Central European Summer Time (UTC+2). So you don't just use a European time zone here, but also jump back and forth by 2 hours in spring and autumn. This is due to the fact that Troll basically consists of only one Norwegian research station.
Further Countries in the same timezone of UTC +2Although the timezone is named 'Central European Summertime', it has mostly politcal reasons. It simply means that eg beginning and ending of daylight saving time always uniformly apply here. There are some other countries, in which the clock strikes just the same hour. These countries have the same temporal distance to UTC (Universal Time Coordinated):
