This paper presents several considerations that must be taken into account in the design of a QoS multipath routing protocol suitable for Smart Electricity Networks (SENs). The main goal is to analyze the routing requirements that will facilitate the future formal specification of a QoS-aware multipath routing algorithm for the coming SEN's data networks in the high voltage segment where long-distance mesh data networks will be a future challenge for engineering and research. In this paper, the study is focused on requirement specification regarding distance-vector routing algorithms that reduce the overall overhead of routing information needed in the network, thus preserving the scalability feature.
