An efficient protocol is modified in improving the metric: energy. Clustering is performed in mobile adhoc network (MANET) with two approaches: static clustering and dynamic clustering. The goal is to achieve improved energy life time resulting in dynamic clustering for the specified metric. The protocol in proactive, reactive and hybrid mode for static clustering possess more energy consumption. The proposed Enhanced Optimized Polymorphic Hybrid Multicast Routing Protocol (EOPHMR) save more energy than proactive, reactive and hybrid. The performance comparison of results on energy consumption and saved energy for proactive, reactive, hybrid and EOPHMR are presented.
