Paris' La Defense business district, whose skyscrapers house many of France's biggest companies, said it would target a 15% reduction in electricity consumption in the area, as Europe faces up to an energy crisis after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

French President Emmanuel Macron has asked industry, households and municipal authorities to reduce their energy consumption by 10% in response to Russia's cut to gas supplies and spiralling energy prices.

La Defense lies to the west of Paris, and is often regarded as the French capital's version of London's Canary Wharf.
