Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a form of short term based network that contains multidimensional nodes having major concern such as battery power resources. Energy is playing as consequential undertakings in MANET. Limited power of network causes many effects on the performance of the networks. Lack of energy factor may break the connection which can mess the network or routing process. Routing process requires efficient utilization of battery power or energy to maintain the network condition so that packet can be transferred without any obstacle in the performance. As well as, network life or life of node is proportional to battery life which is powered by limited capacity. The meaning of energy-efficient is not about consuming less energy but to increase the time duration to maintain the network performance level. Routing performances can differ depending upon the network parameters. In order to reduce the usage of energy and to increase the life span of battery, several others Ad hoc routing protocols are reviewed with their novel conceptions and optimization techniques over the main routing protocols.
