How to store UTC dates from within SQL

We have connected PI as a linked server in SQL server.


For example, currently our queries look like this:

SELECT * FROM OPENQUERY(PI, 'INSERT INTO piarchive..picomp2 (tag, time, value, annotations) VALUES (''SU1.1051-3.VAL'',  ''2017-09-30 00:00'', 22, ''anno'')')

SELECT * FROM OPENQUERY (PI, 'UPDATE piarchive..picomp2 SET annotations =  ''anno'', value = 22 WHERE tag = ''SU1.1051-3.VAL'' AND time = ''2017-09-30 00:00''')


The problem is that we have no option to insert the correct times during the wintertime shifting.


Does anyone know how to insert UTC times from within a SQL Server stored procedure?


Thanks for your help.
