Device-to-device (D2D) communications underlaying LTE-A networks is expected to bring significant benefits for resource utilization and energy efficiency (EE) improvement of user equipment (UE). However, the allocation of radio and power resources to D2D communications needs elaborate coordination, because of the interference between D2D communications and cellular communications. In this paper, we propose an energy-efficient cooperative D2D communication (EECD2D) technique using a power allocation algorithm, aiming at maximizing EE introduced by D2D communications in LET-A networks. Specifically, we define four D2D and cellular combinations based on distances, and analyze average EE of EECD2D and that of cooperative D2D communications without optimization. Results show that average EE of our algorithm is much higher than that without optimization, and closer D2D cooperators and distant cellular UEs whose uplink resource is reused, achieve highest average energy efficiency.
