[img:Mercom.thumbnail.jpg| ]Austin, TX, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- July 24, 2013 - Venture capital funding in smart grid remained in a rut in Q2 2013, coming in at $50 million in 10 deals, according to Mercom Capital Group’s latest quarterly review.

This compares with the $62 million in 9 deals in Q1 3013, and except for Q3 2012, VC funding has remained in the $50-70 million range with 9-12 deals for almost two years.

As such this is consistent with four of the past five quarters – with the lone exception of Q3 2012 with Alarm.com’s monster $136 million raise.
