With the increasing scarcity of resources, the need for energy efficient solutions has reached its pinnacle. Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) is no exception and there is a need for exclusive solutions for energy efficient data dissemination and information retrieval. The proposed scheme classifies the vehicles into different types based on their storage and computation capacity. Cluster heads (CHs) are elected for each energy zone according to type of vehicle, and act as information center. Apart from CHs, the dissemination of data and access of information in efficient and correct manner is made possible with the help of vehicles having high processing capability. The broadcast storm problem that consumes high energy in terms of bandwidth, is solved using proposed game theoretic decision model. The proposed model gives suggestion to vehicles whether to disseminate the information or not based on the current energy situation of the network. Simulation results prove that the proposed model saves energy and time by minimizing the overhead and delay. The network energy is efficiently utilized by achieving higher packet delivery ratio and lower delay than other state-of-art protocols.
