Bjarne Olesen, Ph.D., Fellow ASHRAE, is ASHRAE’s President for the 2017-2018 term. Olesen has previously served on the Board of Directors as Treasurer, Vice President and Director-at-Large.

Olesen is the Director of the International Center for Indoor Environment and Energy and a Professor at Danish Technical University. 

Olesen earned his Ph.D. in Heating and Air Conditioning in 1975 and Master of Science in Civil Engineering in 1972 – both degrees obtained from the Technical University of Denmark.


President Olesen focuses his theme on three directives: extend our global community; extend our technological horizons; and extend our value to members.

“Extending our global community will acknowledge our interconnectedness worldwide and embrace our shared needs and objectives,” Olesen said. “The technical guidance we produce for all members is made stronger by global diversity.”

From the start of Olesen’s time with ASHRAE, he did not have the opportunity to get involved with a local chapter to dedicate his time and efforts to the HVAC industry – and believes in the importance of working together to create a better built environment.

“Many of our members are only active on one side – either the technical side, mainly at the Society level, or the grassroots side at the local chapter level,” Olesen said. “However, one side cannot live without the other. We will work to extend our global connections and more strongly link our members worldwide. Doing so will strengthen our Society’s knowledge base, community reach and ability to shape a more sustainable world.”
