Denmark moves forward w/artificial island energy hub, 50 miles off shore: Phase one w/ about 3,000 MW, & full buildout of 10,000 MW. 

I've been seeing a lot about this artificial energy hub, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around the value add, particularly as this appears to be a one of a kind project for now. Why is Denmark investing heavily in this-- what are the real value advantages, and are they enough to see them scaled to other offshore wind / energy hubs? 

Thanks, as always, Peter!
