SQL Server does not store time zone data when storing timestamps. It uses the host server time as the basis for generating the output of getdate. To convert a UTC timestamp to a local time zone, you can use the following. CET to UTC call time Best time for a conference call or a meeting is between 9am-6pm in CET which corresponds to 8am-5pm in UTC 4:30 am Central European Summer Time (CEST). UTC to Central Standard Time - Below is a table showing the conversion from UTC to Madison Time. A rule of thumb is to subtract 5 hours from UTC time. However, starting November 1st, when we switch to Central Standard Time, you must subtract 6 hours. UTC Time: CDT Time: UTC Time: CDT Time: 0000 UTC: 1800 CST: 12 AM: 6 PM. China Time Central European Time Time Converter: If you know the GMT/UTC time difference: Offset Converter. CET = Central European Time, GMT+1 CEST = Central European Summer Time (Daylight Saving Time) GMT+2. UTC to CET call time Best time for a conference call or a meeting is between 8am-5pm in UTC which corresponds to 9am-6pm in CET 2:00 pm Universal Time Coordinated (UTC).
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:
|Bosnia and Herzegovina||countrywide||CET||CEST|
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):
