I have the following sentences:
- "Optimization methods can lead to (a) better utilization of renewable energy sources"
- "Optimization methods lead to (a) better utilization of renewable energy sources"
My question is, whether it is a mistake to use the article 'a' in this context. I used to have the articcle there but Grammarly tells me to get rid of it. As something like this can be found frequently in my thesis, I'd appreciate it if anyone could comment on my question.
