In this paper, an efficient and modified load balancing algorithm is proposed. This paper shows the results of the proposed energy aware load balancing algorithm. Global re-clustering is initiated when the network becomes significantly unbalanced i.e. if the variance of degree of the cluster heads in the network is greater than a pre-determined threshold. Degree of all cluster heads would be required at a single node to evaluate the average of degree of all cluster heads in the network and subsequently the variance among themselves, which is not possible in ad-hoc network because of its distributed nature.
