Many thanks for all your questions for Chris Huhne, the UK energy secretary. His answers will appear on this site on Friday, January 7th.

Next week, the person in the hotseat will be Jack Gerard, the CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, the oil industry lobby group based in Washington DC.

This is your chance to ask him about anything: from why he thinks the US should open up more of its land and coast to drilling; to how much public support the industry has in the wake of the Gulf oil spill; to what a high oil price could mean for the recovery.

Email all your questions to energysource@ft.com by the end of Sunday, January 9th.

In this first weekly readers’ Q&A session of 2011, Chris Huhne, the UK energy secretary, answers your electricity-market related questions.

In the second of two posts, he discusses the cost of emissions targets, the chances of another oil shock and what should happen to the “big six” power companies.

Earlier, he addressed the limits of feed-in tariffs, what will happen to the renewables obligation and how to keep green jobs in the UK.

Next in the hotseat is Jack Gerard, the head of the American Petroleum Institute, who will be answering your questions next Friday, January 14th. Send in your questions for consideration by the end of Sunday, January 9th – to energysource@ft.com.

But for now, over to Chris:

The UK energy secretary has promised to ensure that industrial-scale solar farms do not swallow up too much of the money dedicated to incentivising small-scale renewables projects.

Answering Energy Source readers’ questions, Chris Huhne said that access to feed-in tariffs could be limited to make sure smaller-scale projects get a fair share.
