Limited energy resource, routing of packets and security are the major challenges in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) due to their inherent characteristics. This paper focuses on energy consumption in MANET, which is a very serious issue because this affects the network lifetime directly. The authors concentrate on selection of energy-efficient routing protocols to minimize energy consumption by the nodes during message transmission. Attempt has been made to point out the causes of unnecessary consumption in the network. Comparative analysis of different energy-efficient routing techniques has been performed and an attempt has been made to propose a better solution. Quality of service also has been taken into account.
