The following two graphs summarize the rounds of funding going into the Energy Technology space. Please note these graphics are made using data through March 2017.
The graph above shows the total amount of VC funding broken out by round. From 2007 to 2013, we’ve seen a large increase in the amount of Mid and Late Stage funding events (Series B, C, D, and Late Stage). The amount of overall funding has also seen large growth since 2007 and then somewhat decreased after 2013.
The graph above shows the total count of funding events broken out by round. Over the past decade we’ve seen a gradual upward trend that peaked in 2013 and dipped somewhat after 2015. Earlier stage deals (Seed, Series A, B, and C) have seen the largest growth in the number of funding events.
