In search of maritime energy management

This thesis deals with a transdisciplinary research project that concerned the implementation of an energy management system standard -- ISO 50001 -- in two shipping companies. This project was partially succesful insofar as we implemented the standard in one of the two companies. It is a thesis by papers: the introductory text discusses the research process, to explore in hindsight how transdisciplinarity was made possible. The appended papers bring up issues that were suitable to fit into such a structure during the course of the implementation project, and after. These issues are related to various aspects of "maritime energy management". The papers can be read in any order, with or without reading the introduction first, but my intention is that you continue reading, page by page, beyond this abstract and onwards until recommended otherwise. On the other hand, as Umberto Eco wrote: "books are not made to be believed, but to be subjected to inquiry."
