[R] time zone - best way to shift hours

I frequently work with hourly data in GMT format, and ensure that any data I read into R are expressed in GMT through as.POSIXct(mydate, tz = "GMT").

I am interested in processing air pollution data in GMT where where peaks in emissions (say from road traffic sources) tend to occur at the same LOCAL time each day. I am interested in calculating mean concentrations by hour of day i.e. a diurnal profile, consisting of 24 hourly means. The profile would be clearer if all hours were in local time e.g. the daylight saving hours were shifted by +1 hour. This would ensure that the summer and winter profiles match up with those in emissions.

I've looked though the various R documents/forum, but can't seem to identify the easiest approach to this.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks.
