Executive Summary

It has been shown that network coding has the potential of reducing energy consumption in wireless networks. In it is shown that network coding can reduce energy consumption in wireless networks for many-to-many communication. In and multiple unicast traffic is considered. Some design principles and a lower bound on the maximum energy savings of network codes are presented in. In the focus is on reducing the number of transmissions in order to reduce interference and hence increase throughput. Some of the considerations of, however, apply to energy savings of network coding as well.
