A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of self configuring mobile devices, capable of moving randomly and connected through wireless physical medium without having any fixed infrastructure. All the nodes in a MANET act both as a router and as a host. However, in today's scenario the biggest challenge in MANET is to reduce energy consumption and overhead of each node, and to give a better packet delivery ratio. This paper gives the new Energy Based AODV (EBAODV) protocol that will not only reduce the energy consumption but also takes node's remaining energy. Based on this it will forward the packets in MANET.
