WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2011) - TV Worldwide (www.TVWorldwide.com), since 1999, a pioneering web-based global TV network, on March 25 launched Clean Cities TV (CCTV), the educational Internet channel of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Clean Cities program. Available at www.CleanCities.TV, the channel features live and recorded Internet TV content about Clean Cities and its mission to reduce U.S. petroleum consumption through the use of alternative and renewable fuels, idle reduction and fuel economy measures, and new emerging technologies.
In a unique production arrangement, Clean Cities' nearly 100 coordinators from across the country will record video content highlighting their petroleum-reduction collaboration efforts and submit this footage for production. TV Worldwide, in turn, will produce the videos to educate viewers on best practices and post them for viewing on CCTV. In addition, TV Worldwide will develop live interactive webcasts about alternative transportation options on location and at the company's state-of-the-art Internet TV studios near Washington, D.C.
"The use of live and on-demand Internet TV to educate and inform is growing rapidly in the professional community, especially at the federal level where there is a need to efficiently communicate best practices, and Clean Cities is a leading example," said Dave Gardy, Chairman and CEO of TV Worldwide. "Clean Cities continues to be successful at implementing vital alternative fuel and petroleum-reduction technologies at the municipal level, and Clean Cities TV is the answer to cost-effectively communicate the best practices from these strategies so all cities, their stakeholder partners and the public can benefit."
TV Worldwide's network of Internet TV channels currently offers several different target demographic audiences, including the National League of Cities TV, (www.NLCTV.org), produced in cooperation with the National League of Cities. "We want to make sure that our NLC TV audience of 22,000 city decision makers in 1600 member cities is aware of content that's important to them on Clean Cities TV, especially since many of the Clean Cities Program solutions mean real savings for cities, an important consideration in this time of tight municipal budgets," Gardy said.
