This paper gives an overview, how Automatic Meter Infrastructure (AMI) enable possibilities to participate flexibility markets. Paper introduces the current situation in Finnish electricity market and role of AMI for demand response. Flexibility market places available today in Finland are introduced with their technical specifications. Possibilities and development needs in AMI in respect to these requirements are discussed. These aspects need to be evaluated when planning new AMI projects. The paper proposes a novel AMI solution and business model based on requirements of flexibility market to realize large-scale demand response of small distributed energy resources. AMI-based demand response could be one of the solutions to activate customers and seems to be an interesting option to bring small scale resources in the flexibility market in cost-efficient manner.
