The investigation in this chapter presents various techniques and methods of progress in the area of cognitive network cooperative spectrum handovers. CR handovers are represented as a unique field of research in both the wireless and networking communities. The CR handovers have given significant implications over the design aspect of networks, specifically the support for adaptable cross-layer algorithms in physical link quality, radio interference, radio node density, and network topology are expected to have advanced management and control that supports cross-layer information and internode collaboration. The methods for energy efficiency network selection in CR handovers are focused. An overview of energy efficient network selection and system model is described using cooperative active and inactive methods along with IEEE 802.16g network selection model. This chapter also discusses various direct and cooperative transmission factors and all performances of each method are simulated.
