France will cut off hot water in toilets in public buildings and municipalities will have to reduce the temperature of water in public swimming pools by 1 degree Celsius as part of broader plans to cut energy consumption, Reuters reports.

President Emmanuel Macron's government is due to announce energy-saving measures Thursday designed to avoid power cuts or gas shortages during the winter.

He has instructed industry, households and municipal authorities to cut energy consumption by 10 percent in response to reduced gas supplies from Russia and rising energy prices.

Le Parisien newspaper reported that hot water production in administrative buildings alone accounts for 10 percent of energy bills.
