Daylight Saving Time: What will change if we do not readjust the clocks?

The EU is considering abolition of daylight saving time or winter time. In an online survey, citizens can now share ir opinion on time changeover. In any case, European Commission has a nerve with this issue. Due to many accesses to online survey, site is regularly overloaded and unavailable.

The discussion about pros and cons of time changeover has been around since its introduction in year 1980. A Commission spokesman pointed out that studies on possible health problems caused by time changeover to today did not allow clear conclusions. Therefore, decision must now be taken "on basis of or criteria". According to Commission, according to recent studies, impact on Biorhythm could be more than expected. However, re are also positive health effects associated with more outdoor leisure activities. However, energy saving effects originally hoped for during summer period are "marginal" at best.

In EU survey, participants can specify a preference for eir "permanent daylight saving Time" or "permanent winter time" in event of abolition. In our interactive visualisation you can simulate both variants for your place of residence. In all scenarios, you can see for every day of year when sun rises and sets in your place of residence. In addition, you can compare two places and see which place has more daylight.

The significantly different day lengths in course of a year depend on orbit of Earth around sun. The Norrn hemisphere is inclined to sun for half a year because of inclination of Globe (summer) and half a year from Sun (winter). Our day-night simulation shows how re are also significant regional differences within Germany.
