At the 100 GW Celebration in Brussels (Belgium), Meyer Burger received the Solar Visualised in Europe Award from the European solar industry association SolarPower Europe for the CSEM solar facade project. The winner of the award was selected via a contest entitled “The Beauty of Solar Power Europe”. Meyer Burger came out the winner, with a CSEM image taken by Swiss photographer David Marchon of the south facade of the CSEM building located at Rue de la Maladière 83 in Neuchâtel. The photovoltaic modules that make up the facade are composed of high-efficiency bifacial solar cells, also known as solar cells based on heterojunction technology (HJT), a forward-looking technology developed entirely in Neuchâtel by EPFL's PV Lab and CSEM's PV-center.

This advanced technology was transferred to the Meyer Burger Group, which currently produces systems for manufacturing both bifacial cells and bifacial modules, combining heterojunction technologies with solar cell interconnection technology (SmartWire Connection Technology). Besides the technological and energy benefits, the facade stands out thanks to its architectural integration—an inspiration to professional and amateur photographers alike.
