Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are gaining much importance due to their varied characteristics and the ease with which they can be implemented in various environments to suit different purposes. The sensor nodes which are the main components of WSNs are typically battery equipped and difficult to recharge. Hence, the primary concern while designing such networks is to reduce the overall power consumption in order to prolong the network lifetime An efficient energy conservation technique and algorithm in order to generate a network with desired properties while reducing sensor's energy consumption are discussed and shown through simulation in this paper. Here we have proposed an algorithm, which does not have a fixed infrastructure ie., it is Ad-Hoc in nature, for reducing the overall energy usage by means of periodic coordination amongst Gateway Nodes and Base station
