The Key Takeaways
Partnering with Derive
Derive partnered with leaders in Comcast's Environmental, Health, &Safety Group and the Operations team to pilot the Derive software across a test group of 150 vehicles. Every vehicle was reconfigured on a VIN specific basis to reduce idle RPM rate, optimize shift points, and limit the top speed of the vehicle.
The test group was measured against the control group and at the end of the pilot, both groups were compared to measure overall change in fuel economy. Derive optimized vehicles saw an average of 9.2% MPG improvement when compared against the control group.
Substantial change for the better
At the end of the pilot, Comcast rolled Derive out across all 20k vehicles. In the past 4.5 years, Comcast averaged a 9.2% reduction in fuel burn which translates to over $75 million in savings to date and over 154k metric tons of CO2 Reduced.
