Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is a promising wireless network architecture having potential of last few miles connectivity. There has been considerable research work carried out on various issues like design, performance, security etc. in WMN. Due to increasing interest in WMN and use of smart devices with bandwidth hungry applications, WMN must be designed with objective of energy efficient communication. As networks are designed to meet Quality of Service (QoS) as per worst conditions, allows scope for tuning parameters to suit current environment/traffic conditions etc. towards goal of energy efficient communication.
