Cluster-Monte-Carlo simulations are used to calculate the structure factors associated with order-parameter and energy correlations for square and cubic Ising models, from which the corresponding correlation lengths $\xi$ and $\xi_{\rm E}$, respectively, are determined. The amplitude ratio $X_{\rm E}\equiv \xi_{\rm E}^2 /\xi^2$ is asymptotically universal but strongly influenced by the crossover from mean-field behavior. The numerically determined $X_{\rm E}$ therefore does not reach its universal asymptotic value but agrees well with $\varepsilon$-expansion predictions including corrections to scaling. The consequences for experiments on near-critical fluids and colloidal systems are briefly discussed.
