German term or phrase: Bauteilaktivierung
From a building specification - which has to be returned to the client in an hour!

Die permanent hinterlüftete Doppelfassade mit ihren unteren und oberen Zu- bzw. Abluftschlitzen in der Außenfassade sorgt für ein sehr gutes Raumklima, unterstützt durch die mögliche *Bauteilaktivierung*

agree  Andrew D: component activation is it, but here is a correct link: => http://ish.messefrankfurt.com/frankfurt/en/presse-center_new... Also important for architects nowadays is building-component activation via air or water.
