In case of routing protocols the wireless sensor network requirements are very specific, and it is the outcome of distributed nature and dynamic topology. For efficient WSN energy consumption and life time are on highest priority .There are many energy efficient algorithm which have been proposed in recent past. We may classify these algorithm on the basis of Reliable Routing, Network topology, Communication model and Network structure. Here we are presenting a compact analysis of energy efficiency issues of WSN algorithms with USEP as a special case.
