Energy saving in telecommunications networks has become a well established topic in the research community. We look at the electrical and optical layers of IP-over-WDM networks, and present a list of evaluation criteria for the Energy-Aware Adaptive Routing Solutions (EA-ARSs) from the perspective of a network operator. Furthermore, we briefly explain the EA-ARSs originating from European Union's TREND, the FP7 Network of Excellence, show saving of energy consumed by Line Cards (LCs) on a
