Recent years have seen a tremendous growth and application of mobile adhoc networks. MANET has essentially become a part and parcel of modern day lifestyle. One of the challenges faced by MANET is of energy consumption. Therefore a numerous energy efficient routing mechanism have been proposed in the past. With increase in computation power of nodes and use of high end processors in mobile nodes have further increased its importance as battery life is more and less remained same in these years.
