We use energy density functional methods to compute the nuclear matrix elements (NME) of neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) in the Cadmium isotopic chain. The interconnected role of deformation, pairing, configuration mixing in the NMEs is discussed in the candidate 116Cd and extended to the whole isotopic chain. In addition, strong shell effects are found and compared to a generalized seniority model.
