The dependency of the cellular or mobile network is increasing exponentially with the growth of dynamic demands of the mobile users globally. There is a huge trade-off between the energy consumption and service enhancement in present and upcoming future cellular network services and technologies. In order to cater up extensive coverage area, the energy required by the base station and its associated components needs to expend a good amount of energy. This paper has identified a problem of energy consumption over the usage of the cellular network, which the massive numbers of increasing mobile users are facing at present. Therefore, this paper performs a thorough investigation about the contribution being made by the prior researchers pertaining to address energy problems along with investigating of the existing research trends. The findings of the paper will highlights the techniques adopted by them and will also showcase the associated research gap from the existing studies.
