Norway uses Central European Time CET and Central European Sumer Time CEST. CET is UTC +0100 and CEST is UTC +0200. Norway’s longitude is 10° 00’ E. Therefore being one hours ahead of UTC is very suitable for Norway. The latitude of Norway most southern point is 58° N, the North of the country is over 70° N. Therefore daylight savings time is very useful for the south of the country. In the far north there is almost no light in the winter and no darkness in the summer. Up there DST is useless.
