Thought leadership with Shoosmiths

Shoosmiths is a law firm supporting clients across the UK and internationally. It was winner of Law Firm of the Year at the Legal Business Awards 2022.

Cornwall Insight developed a series of thought leadership reports with Shoosmiths, co-authoring three papers. The first paper, published in September 2021, focused on the consolidation in the domestic energy market, looking at the intense competition in the sector and assessing innovative business models.

The second paper, Unlocking net zero strategies for business, published in November 2021, explored the potential routes to decarbonisation that businesses have at their disposal to meet their targets and help countries meet their net zero targets. 

The third paper, Battery-as-a-service: an underexplored opportunity?, published in July 2022, focused on e-mobility, considering the merits and challenges of BaaS (battery-as-a-service) and whether it is a viable option for the UK, either supplementing ‘traditional’ charging infrastructure, or helping meet demand in specific conurbations. Shoosmiths also supported four sessions of Cornwall Insight’s Financing Net Zero online forum. Topics discussed in our webinars included merchant financing, battery storage revenues and the role of hydrogen in decarbonisation.
