Available Fusion Power?

Here’s a blog on Dr. Robert Bussard’s Fusion Power plans. Instead of the billions required to develop Tokamak fusion energy, Dr. Bussard suggests using an Inertial-Electrodynamic Fusion device. According to an article I read in Analog on his work, it appears that he has already developed devices that produce power, although not net-positive, they clearly show the way. Some of the advantages include smaller in size than the traditional approaches, and cleaner, with no radioactive output or byproducts.

Here you can see Dr. Bussard at a Google Tech Talk, and a transcript of his presentation here.
