Abstract: Mobile Ad-hoc network (MANET) is a self configured and self organized network that does not require any infrastructure support. MANET deals with mobile nodes that moves randomly which tends to make the network to have an unpredicted topology. Mobile nodes run on batteries, which as a result makes energy as an important challenging factor in MANET. Due to changes in the topology, the network is prone to link break. This survey paper is aimed at reviewing different enhanced AODV routing protocols in terms of energy. The conventional AODV is concern about finding the shortest path without taking energy into consideration.
