Shaghayegh Smousavi

Passionated about transition and resilience. Working in the energy sector for almost two decades, with a focus on EU and German regulation in the field of hydrogen, renewables and decarbonisation of energy intensive industries.

One and one is more than two.

Green hydrogen is key to energy transition. WiGH provides a unique platform for me to connect with women across the continents who share the same vision, a cleaner world for the next generation.

CMS Law Tax / Partner

Since many years, I assist energy utilities, public entities, investors, project developers, as well as industrial companies in the energy sector, with a focus on EU and German regulation, hydrogen, renewable energies, CCS/CCU as well as blockchain.

I started my career with an international accounting firm in Frankfurt and Paris in 2000 and I have subsequently been working for a tax consultancy firm in Niamey (Niger) and the European Commission in Brussels as well as in a London based international law firm before joining CMS Gernmany as Partner. I have frequently been awarded as one of Germany's leading energy lawyers.

Working on several continents, in different cultures and languages has convinced me of the extraordinary strength of diverse teams, especially in times of crisis and transition.
