The energy inefficiency of electronic devices is the major limiting factor for the adoption of these devices in Machine-to-Machine Communications (M2M)/Internet of Things (IoT). In order to address this, different emerging M2M communications standardisation organisations have proposed perceived energy efficient protocols. The essence of this paper is to discuss the energy implications of different M2M communication standards on the lifespan of the electronic devices that are to be used for the M2M communications.
