  European Summer Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
European Summer Time is the daylight saving time practised in Europe, the period during which clocks are advanced by one hour in relation to the official time observed during the rest of the year.
This is done in all of the countries of Europe except Iceland (which observes UTC all year round), and has also been prescribed by a directive of the European Union [1].
In most of Europe the word Summer is added to the name of each European time zone during this period: thus, in the UTC+1 time zone, Central European Time becomes Central European Summer Time (UTC+2).
