The Dam is a 8×12 building that increases the energy cap by 7 to 37 (without any other upgrades) at level 1. It can be only placed at a certain location on the river like the Platform Bridge. If neccesary, you will have to expand (on the left side of the river) to place it. As of May 11, 2012, the Dam can be upgraded to level 3, increasing the energy cap by an additional 2.

When placed, You will need 4 of the following items: Rotor, Flood Gate, Hydraulic Turbine, Canal Lock and Generator.

When you get all parts, you will need Energy-icon 15 Energy to build, but when you complete it, you will get Energy-icon 31 Energy, and it increases the population limit by 800.

The Dam can be supplied with Goods-icon 400 Goods every 12 hours, which adds 1 energy to the usual energy cap of 30, allowing you to raise the cap to a maximum of 37. Failing to supply the Dam within 24 hours means you lose one bonus energy each time, subsequently bringing your energy cap down to 30 again.
