Energy efficiency is one of the critical issues in the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), since sensor devices are tiny and integrated with a limited capacity battery. In most of the advanced applications, WSNs operate in very harsh areas and not under supervision of human controls. Routing protocols play a significant role in energy balancing by incorporating the techniques that can reduce control overhead, proper data aggregation method and feasible path selection. It demands a unique requirement due to its frequent topology changes and distributive nature. One of the major concerns in the design of routing protocol in WSNs is efficient energy usage and prolonging Network lifetime. This paper mainly discusses different issues related to energy efficiency in routing protocols of all categories. It incorporates most recent routing protocols which improves the energy efficiency in various application environments. This paper also provides comprehensive details of each protocol which emphasize their principles and explore their advantages and limitations. These protocols belong to different classifications based on Network Structures, communication model, topology and QoS parameters. It also includes more relevant and prominent comparisons with all recent State-of-Art works.
