Energy efficient clustering is well known optimization problem which has been studied widely to extend lifetime of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Grid computing enables different entities to share computational, memory and data resources using a flexible and secure framework. These resources enable users to run computational jobs that exceed the capabilities of available sensor at any single location. The algorithm presented here is to create a virtual cluster within established clusters in wireless sensor network to share individual sensor resources, which permits the wireless sensor network to gain extra cluster resources to run resource consuming applications with private resource control policies.
