An overview is given of fusion relevant performance in a number of JET operational regimes. It is shown that in most areas JET provides a suitable platform on which to base the design and predict the performance of a next step device. The main problem is that of controlling impurity influxes and plasma exhaust. These are to be studied in a new phase programme under consideration. The fusion performance already obtained in JET is described, with 100kW of fusion power being generated in charged particles from the D-He(3) reaction and more than 10 MW of fusion power predicted from present discharges if operated in D-T.
