MANET is a multi-hop, infrastructureless wireless network where nodes are free to move and have limited bandwidth and battery power. Energy is one of the important parameter for current research area. The aim of this paper is to develop an algorithm that will reduced the energy consumption and overhead of each node and improve the throughput. The algorithm called Energy based Gossip (EBG) routing protocol that derives from the AODV protocol, uses Gossip technique based on the remaining energy of each node. The results of EBG algorithm is compared with AODV protocol by using NS-2 as the simulation tool. The simulation results show that energy consumption due to routing packets and routing overhead reduced can be reduced up to 10% to 30% using the new routing method.
