Is the implementation of daylight saving time useful in Jordan?

Arab Weather - The official Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan time, which corresponds to the longitude on which the Kingdom is located, is 2 + UTC, meaning that it is two hours more than UTC, and this time is known locally as winter time

Daylight savings time , or what is known as the provider for daylight Saving Daylight is to carry out an additional increase of an hour on the original timing of the country, in the case of Jordan , the Kingdom becomes the timing of summer is 3 + UTC that any increase in 3 hours Coordinated Universal Time Unified UTC.

The theory behind the implementation of daylight saving time is to make more use of daylight during work hours in the spring and summer , and thus reduce energy consumption (this timing does not achieve the same result in the winter season because the number of daylight hours is inherently very short)

 

The benefit from daylight saving time and energy conservation lies by advancing the clock by 60 minutes, so that the Kingdom’s summer time is 3 + UTC, and thus the sunset is apparently delayed by an hour and thus daylight remains bright for a longer time and thus energy and lighting are not consumed at the state level. The last few hours of the day are considered prime hours .

Many countries in the world apply daylight saving time, especially those whose climate has 4 distinct seasons. The map is on the next page. These countries are shown .

 

Most of the Arab countries do not apply daylight saving time, the world map and the times applied in the countries are countries that apply daylight saving time in the north of the globe . Countries that implement daylight saving time in the south of the globe Countries that previously implemented daylight saving time and then canceled it Countries that did not implement daylight saving time before the implementation of daylight saving time

 

All countries implementing the system of changing the time to daylight saving time adopt a fixed date for its start and end. The start of changing time to daylight saving time is the last weekend in March, while the end of it is the last weekend in October .

 

There are no countries that have implemented Daylight Saving Time that have a different start and end date .

 

It has been observed in a number of countries that daylight saving time is not applied when the month of Ramadan approaches its start date (such as the Republic of Egypt), as it is believed that the original timing of the countries is more appropriate than daylight saving time because the daily activities and peak times in Ramadan differ radically from other months and that The original time provides more productivity since the period between breakfast and suhoor becomes complete an hour earlier. The difference between sunrise and sunset between the two times in Jordan is Daylight Saving Time +3 UTC if the time change is applied as usual ) Winter Time (original) +2 UTC if change of time to Daylight Saving Time is not implemented

Is the implementation of daylight saving time in Jordan useful?

The implementation of daylight saving time in Jordan is feasible for the following reasons:

Correspondence to the timing of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (economic return), as Saudi Arabia is one of the largest economies of the Arab countries .

Reducing the number of hours difference between Jordan and the Gulf countries (such as the UAE) from 2 hours to 1 hour, thus resulting in better economic return and ease of work .

Daylight saving time makes the sunrise time reasonable (5:30) in the spring and summer months, while if the time is not applied, the sunrise time in the summer becomes at 4:30 and becomes early .

Daylight saving time also works to make the sunset time late (7:50) and thus make more use of daylight during peak hours , while if the timing is not applied, the time for sunset in the summer season becomes at (6:30) and becomes enlarged and He is forced to use energy to light up early.

 

Daylight Saving Time start date

The start date of daylight saving time must be consistent with its objectives. When the date of sunrise in the original time (winter) reaches 5:30, it must be applied so that the date of sunrise is not too early. This is consistent with the start date in force now (end of March) .

In order not to cause confusion with the outside world, it is advisable to unify the application of daylight saving time with them, as all countries that implement daylight saving time begin at the end of March . Airlines, smartphones, exchanges, relationships and bank transfers all depend on timings .

Winter time (original) is practically better than summer time for the month of Ramadan , and if there is a reason to postpone the application of daylight saving time, then it will be postponed until after the month of Ramadan

Recommendations

  1. It is recommended to continue applying the two times (original / winter and summer) .
  2. It is recommended to keep the start and end dates for daylight saving time as it is currently in place .
  3. It is recommended that a separate study be conducted to examine the idea of delaying the application of daylight saving time during this year and the next few years until after the month of Ramadan .
  4. It is recommended to conduct an electronic popular survey of people's opinions about the idea of applying the two times and the idea of postponing the application of daylight saving time until after the month of Ramadan, and we can provide that quickly
