Energy consumption is a major issue in designing protocols for Ad Hoc Wireless Networks due to battery constrains. This paper identifies the inefficient elements of expanding ring search protocol and proposes the new blocking expanding ring search approach which demonstrates substantial energy savings without an increase in route discovery latency.
