Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks are being applied in many real world applications in recent years. For real time applications WSN are proving to be the best mechanism. Some of the important application examples for WSN are environment monitoring, health monitoring and military etc. Such applications require real time data to be delivered on time for critical evaluations. To ensure the reliability in wireless sensor networks applications, power efficiency needs to be focused since sensor nodes have a limited power supply. The power efficiency in wireless sensor networks is a main factor to ensure the success of these networks. The main sources of energy consumption in WSN are routing process and initialization process in routing mechanism which applies a significant impact on energy level. The works proposed and implemented by the various authors examined energy level and performance in terms of the entire process of routing mechanism. This work proposes to reduce the usage of the energy and long sustaining energy levels in the WSN. As energy level is critical in evaluating the performance therefore an algorithm is being proposed to evaluate the best route on the basis of the energy levels of the nodes alongwith other metrics. This will be useful in forwarding the packets to even long distances with the least burden on the nodes having less energy level. The store & forward technique is being applied for reducing the energy usage involved in getting routing information from other nodes.
