The Joint European Torus (JET) at Culham has achieved a fusion power output of 16MW. In 2017-18 we will try to break this record. The next step is a self sustaining fusion burn in ITER the international experiment under construction in France. However to make commercial electricity from fusion we need to reduce the cost and scale of fusion devices. I will describe the physics that determines the scale and the cost. The MAST -U device which will start operation later this year is designed to create fusion onditions at small scale. I will also describe the innovations that will be tested in MAST -U.
