I'm not entirely clear from this article what the wind energy island is. How does it differ from the general offshore wind energy platforms that have their production transmitted to shore by wire? 

In the image included, I don't see wind turbines-- is this just an island of storage that supports wind turbines that are located elsewhere in that water?

Hi Matt. A couple of advantages spring to mind. Firstly the siting can be decided upon by stakeholders and developers. Secondly it may reduce the potential spaghetti of wider grid cabling requirements to shore from various large wind farm zones. Safe harbour, accommodation et al are also useful for developers and operators. Interesting one to watch
